Notes

  • To open Printers and Faxes, click Start, and then click Printers and Faxes.

  • By default, all printing events are written to the system log file. If you want to reduce the amount of data that is logged, disable the logging of information events. If you want to further reduce the amount, disable the warning events. Disabling the logging of spooler error events is not recommended.

Information about functional differences

  • Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
