The Lexmark X1270 All-In-One printer gives you the convenience of being able to print, scan and make copies in one device. Manage all of the printer’s functions through the Lexmark All-In-One Center, which you have the option of installing when you set up the printer on your computer. If you do not have the All-In-One Center software on your computer, install it using the printer’s installation disc. Alternately, go to Lexmark’s home page to download all of the X1270’s software for free.
