In this post I’ll describe the printer management and print document management options. To manage a printer and print documents follow the following steps:

Go to Control Panel, Printer and Faxes, Right Click the printer you want to manage. Now you can see management option from the pop-up menu. Select the appropriate option for the area you want to manage.

See the table below for description of each option.

send a job to an explicit printer
