Chapter 13. Printing > Managing Print Jobs

Managing Print Jobs

Through the process of sending documents to your local or network printer, instances will arise when you must cancel a print job or simply find out what other documents are waiting to be printed. To view the status of a printer, you can open the Printer window for that device. If you are in the process of printing a document from your computer, you can click on the Printer icon in the system tray to bring up the window for that printer. You can also open that printer's window by double-clicking on its icon in the Printers folder. Note that although the first method might display only print jobs created by your computer, the latter method should display all pending print jobs, including those from any other users on your network.

When you open a Printer window, all currently pending documents for that printer are displayed (see Figure 13.10). The pending print jobs are shown in their order in the print queue. The print job at the top of the print queue is the document currently being printed. Any documents below that are printed in descending order.
