Publisher description for Printing Monitor

Printing Monitor program icon

Every Printing that you do thru Windows is managed by the Windows Printing Manager. Each Printer you install (even a virtual printer) is given a Name and every Print Job you make is given an ID code. When you decide to print something, the Windows Printing Manager receives this event and puts it in a printing Queue belonging to that Printer. What information is in that Queue ? the Document you want to print, the amount of papers it contains and the situation of that Print: if it is ready for printing or is it Paused. Now lets understand how this Software interacts with the printing issue: The Software is using the Printing Manager and instructs it to Trigger it whenever a new Print event arrives. The Software then examines the information freshly added to the Queue and compares it to what You have entered in the Configuration window. The information you entered instructs the Software about the rules on which it needs to act. If no Action should be done, the Software continues to monitor events without doing a thing but if an Action should be done then the Software Pauses the current print and alerts you.Now its up to You to decide what to do. You can either continue the printing or delete it.If you decide to continue with the printing the Software will release the Pause but if you decide to Abandon the printing the Software will remove it from the Queue. This software can handle Multiple Printing events and will save the information in its memory until you are free to deal with them. As a bonus, the Trigger this Software receives also includes Error Printing Events like: Out Of Paper, Paper Jam and more - so it can give you alerts on those as well.
