How dow I tell how much ink is left

How do i find out how much ink is left in a cartridge on an HP1310 printer, scanner, copier using a

Windows 7 program?


Obviously, I can't just look at the container, but I've always been able to view this on the computer while using

other systems both at work and at home.  Now, I just don't know where to look.
