Quick Tips

Print Server Properties


Did you know your Windows XP Printers and Faxes tool contains more options in Server Properties?

I had not realized this until recently, even though I've been using Windows XP for years! To get to the Server Properties options, click on File - Server Properties (see screenshot below).

Now you have the option of removing Drivers and Ports from your "print server", along with additional Advanced options. So now you can remove those pesky drivers that won't go away after uninstalling the applications from Add/Remove programs. In the advanced options, you can get rid of the notifications you usually get when a print job you sent to a network printer has completed, as well as change the location of the Spool folder to improve printing speed.

Hope this tip helps you make better use of your pc and the print services it contains.
