Hi All,

My wife has been submitting print jobs today and didn't realize that the
printer she was submitting them to was the wrong one. (She's using a
laptop that sends print jobs to her work printer. Since she's working
on a wireless network from home, she wasn't near the printer where she
thought jobs were going. So, she didn't realize that the jobs weren't
printing.)

Anyway, she's got a queue of jobs for her work printer. Is there any
way to change the destination of these jobs so that they'll print to our
home printer?


Thanks,
Greg Jewell

She needs to cancel the pending jobs and then reprint them to the correct
one. You can't re-direct.

Thanks for the fast answer, Cari. It's not necessarily what I was
hoping to hear, but you can't help that. :)

Thanks again,

You should be able to click start>Printers and Faxes. You'll see a list of
printers associated with your pc. Right click the one you want to use and set
as default. Finish your print job, then go back and reasign your previous
printer default choice.
