Chapter 9. Printing and Faxing with Wind... > Printing from Windows Applications

Printing from Windows Applications

When you print from 16-bit or 32-bit Windows applications, the internal Print Manager kicks in and spools the print job for you, adding it to the queue for the selected printer. The spooler then spools the file to the assigned printers, coordinating the flow of data and keeping you informed of the progress. Jobs are queued up and listed in the given printer's window, from which their status can be observed; they can be rearranged, deleted, and so forth. All the rights and privileges assigned to you, as the user, are applicable, potentially allowing you to alter the queue (as discussed later), rearranging, deleting, pausing, or restarting print jobs.

If the application doesn't provide for a specific printer (typically through a Print Setup dialog box), the default printer is used. You set the default printer from the Printers folder by right-clicking a printer and choosing Set as Default Printer.
