View extended features for your printer

Updated: August 22, 2005

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..

To show extended view
  1. Open the Administrative Tools folder, and then double-click Print Management.

  2. In the Print Management tree, under any print server, right-click Printers, and then click Show Extended View.

    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.
