  • Patent number: 10805485
    Abstract: An image forming apparatus includes: a sheet tray; a sheet detection sensor that detects that a sheet is placed on the sheet tray; a display unit; and a control unit. In a case where the sheet detection sensor detects the sheet on the sheet tray, the control unit determines whether or not to cause the display unit to display a confirmation screen for sheet setting. In a case where a predetermined inappropriate confirmation condition is satisfied, the control unit causes the display unit not to display the confirmation screen. In a case where the inappropriate confirmation condition is not satisfied, the control unit causes the display unit to display the confirmation screen.
