You can also send faxes from the command line in a DOS Window.

Note: To successfully process files specific to a particular application (example Microsoft Word files) that supporting application must be installed on your computer. This caveat applies to
.doc, .docx, .rtf, .xls, .xlsx, .odt, .ods files and also to .txt files.
These file types are processed by a calling procedure to the supporting application to print to the snappy fax printer with the resulting image file being grabbed by snappy fax to process when
the print operation is complete. For .txt files, a call to Notepad is made to perform the supporting print operation.
