I mean, this new Photo Paper that slides out of your printer, is it fixed enough, or should I put it in my fixer tray too make sure?

If you're using those pre-packed overpriced Epson processing chemicals, then the print definitely isn't fixed properly, and it'll fade in no time.
Try the extra fixer bath. After all, how could it be worse?

Are you talking about an inkjet printer? Is this a troll? Inkjet printer paper doesn't use silver halide and shouldn't be put in fixer or any other liquid.

Inkjet paper can be sprayed with a lacquer that is specially designed for the purpose of protecting the surface. I have no idea how well it really works.

Appreciate feedback. I was just wonderin' if this photo paper for the printers last as long as the paper I put in my fixer in my B&W Darkroom? A lifetime, I hope!

The paper may last, but there are likely to be color shifts in the image, the amount of which varies significantly depending on which type of ink your printer uses.
