I want to have incoming faxes printed from tray 2 with my Hp OfficeJet Pro 8600 Premium, rather than tray 1. How do I set this up? I have a brand new Windows 7 64-bit system. Thanks for some help on this one!

You would need to set the Tray 2 as the default tray for Faxes and as well as set the printer drivers to use Tray 2 as the default. This way you could load plain paper in Tray 2 and have specialty paper on Tray 1.
To set the defaulty tray on the printer follow the steps below
1. Touch the right arrow button on the printer control panel
2. Touch Setup
3. Touch Preferences, Touch the down button
4. Touch Default Tray, Touch Tray 2
All incoming faxes should pull from Tray 2 at this point. Follow the steps listed in the document linked below to set the default tray to tray 2 when printing from your computer.
