The Status Monitor
doesn't appear if you're
printing over a network.
Your printer software includes several utilities for managing
print jobs. You can use them to monitor your printer's status,
set up large jobs to print later, and handle network printing. If
you're using your printer on a network, you need to follow
special setup procedures.
This chapter provides instructions for the following:

Managing Print Jobs in Windows
Your Windows printer software includes two management
utilities: the Spool Manager and Status Monitor.
The Spool Manager starts automatically when you send a
job to the printer. It allows you to print in the background
while you continue to work on your computer and to hold
jobs to print at a later time. If you're using your printer on a
network, it also handles multiple print jobs that come in at
the same time.
The Status Monitor, which is available only if you're using
Windows 95, also starts automatically when you send a job
to the printer. It displays on your screen to alert you about
printer and ink status.
