How to Reprint Documents

April 24th, 2008

Windows Only

Have you ever printed something, the printer jams (ha!) and you lost the document? Or you need to reprint something you no longer have on file? Or, just simply need a history of what’s been printed?

A few weeks back I enabled “Keep printed documents” for my printer and now I have a complete history of everything printed!  I can reprint anything. I’ve already saved myself some time. If this sounds like something you’d like, here are the simple steps:

  1. Start, Control Panel
  2. Click Printers
  3. Right click on your printer and choose Properties
  4. Click on the Advanced tab across the top
  5. Put a check in “Keep printed documents”

Now to view or reprint a document, follow steps 1 and 2 above, then double click on your printer for a list of previously printed items.

The only problem with enabling this is, now you will have to manually empty your history from time to time. Again, steps 1 and 2 above, double click your printer, click Printer at the top left, and click Cancel All Documents.
