Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Vista
In Print Management (Printmanagement.msc), extended view displays beneath the columns in the right pane, separated by a splitter bar. Extended view is useful when you want more information about the status of a print job, its owner, the number of pages, the size of the job, when it was submitted, its port, its priority, and so on.
In addition, when the printer has a Web page, extended view displays a Printer Web Page tab. The Web page provides details about the physical properties of the printer and specifications, and sometimes allows remote administration.
|The print server role must be installed and you must be a member of the Administrators group to perform these procedures..|
Open the Administrative Tools folder, and then double-click Print Management.
In the Print Management tree, under any print server, right-click Printers, and then click Show Extended View.
Note To display or hide columns in extended view, select a printer. On the Jobs tab, right-click the column heading row, and then click the name of the column that you want to display or hide.
