If it's any of the Home versions then no, there isn't one.
Do a google search for fax programs...

Unfortunately, FAX is only available in a couple of the high-end
versions of Vista.

You might look at buying Snappy FAX. I've used it a lot myself and
it's great.

Fax programs many times are installed by the manufacturer, and are not
really part of windows. My HP with Home Premium has Fax software as part
of the included modem.

You could click start, right click computer, click properties, click
device manager. Look in modems. If you have fax software it should be
listed there, and you will see the name of it.

Do you have Vista Home Basic? Or Vista Ultimate x64? Or something in
between?

It is SO much easier to offer help when you are "as detailed as possible",
even if you are not a techie. ;^}

Then there isn't one - you will need to install a third-party fax....

Look at the User manual for your modem?

As has already been pointed out in this thread, Vista Home Premium doesn't
have a built-in fax feature. You need to use third-party fax software. Some
people have recommended Snappy Fax.
