How do I find my printing queue?

Answered by Cody Janus

To find your printing queue on a Windows computer, follow these steps:

1. Press the Windows key on your keyboard. This key is usually located between the left Ctrl and Alt keys, and it typically has the Windows logo on it.

2. After pressing the Windows key, a search bar will appear on your screen. Type “print” in the search bar. As you type, the search results will start appearing.

3. Look for the search result that says “Printers & scanners” and click on it. This will open the Printers & scanners settings window.

4. In the Printers & scanners window, you will see a list of all the printers connected to your computer. Locate the printer for which you want to view the queue and click on it to select it.

5. Once the printer is selected, several options will appear beneath it. One of these options is “Open print queue.” Click on this option to open the printing queue for the selected printer.

6. The print queue window will now open, showing you the list of documents that are currently waiting to be printed. Here, you can see the order in which the documents will be printed, as well as any errors or issues that may be preventing certain documents from being printed.

In the print queue window, you have a few additional options:

– You can pause or resume printing by clicking the “Pause” or “Resume” buttons, respectively. Pausing the queue will temporarily stop all printing, while resuming will restart it.

– You can also cancel specific print jobs by selecting them and clicking on the “Cancel” button. This will remove the selected documents from the queue and prevent them from being printed.

– If there are any errors or issues with a particular document, you can right-click on it and select “Restart” to try printing it again.

– Additionally, you can adjust the printing preferences by right-clicking on a document and selecting “Properties.” This will allow you to change settings such as paper size, orientation, quality, and more.

It’s worth noting that the steps mentioned above may vary slightly depending on the version of Windows you are using. However, the general process should be similar.
