Managing Printers and Print Queues

To configure a printer or work with a print queue, click the printer in Devices And Printers. Depending on the type of printer, you will see either a simple printer-queue dialog box or something more elaborate like the one shown in Figure 24-2.

Figure 24-2 Clicking a printer in Devices And Printers might produce a dialog box similar to this, where you can see the status of the selected device, select print options, and perform other configuration tasks.

The top part of this display provides status information. In Figure 24-2, for example, we see that the HP Officejet is set to print in portrait mode on letter-size paper and currently has nothing to do . The options below let you inspect and manipulate the print queue, change print settings (switch from portrait to landscape, for example), and work with the printer's Properties dialog box
