PERFORMANCE ANNOYANCES

CLEAR THE QUEUE

The Annoyance:

I had five minutes to print my report, drink my coffee, make a phone call, and get to a meeting across town. Plenty of time. But when I tried to print my document, I got an error telling me that the network printer queue is full.

The Fix:

A full print queue typically means that the maximum number of print jobs is already waiting for the printer. The easiest workaround is to get a second cup of coffee and try the print job again later (once several jobs have been completed and left the queue). If this becomes a persistent problem for you (and other network users), it might be worth increasing the amount of memory in the printer. Busy network printers could also benefit from an internal hard drive. More RAM and disk space will hold more jobs, effectively giving you a larger queue.
