The tool box allows controlling all aspects of the printing process: paper size, print quality, full-duplex printing, ink cartridge cleaning, cartridge alignment, etc.  Thus, I find myself printing unimportant output at high quality and wasting lots of ink.  So if there's no real "toolbox"-like control-panel, is there at least some way to control the print quality?
