How to prepare new interior trim for paint

We just had new vinyl windows installed. Not replacement, the whole window interior and exterior. We are getting ready to fill the little nailing locations. What would be the steps, and what would be the products?

How to prepare new interior trim for paint

I always use the simple stuff........lightweight spackle.......use a 1-inch putty knife or even your finger to fill the holes. Let dry, then fill with however many coats it takes for it to be flush with the wood trim.......let dry......lightly sand. Apply primer......let dry. Then apply 2 to 3 coats of latex semi-gloss to the trim and you're done.
