Disabling Windows Print Notifications

KB Home   |   Disabling Windows Print Notifications

Windows can be configured to display a print notification in the notification area near the task bar each time a job is sent to a printer. When printing is managed by PaperCut, it is usually a good idea to disable Windows print notifications because PaperCut also displays print notifications, and multiple notifications can be confusing to users.

The Windows printing notifications can also be misleading, because they can indicate that the job has printed when it really hasn’t. The Windows printing notification message includes text like this:

 This document was sent to the printer
 Document: <doc-name>
 Printer: <printer-name>
 Time: <time>
 Total Pages: <pages>

You can disable Windows print notifications by following the steps listed in the Microsoft Support article How to Enable or Disable Print Job Notifications
