Windows Print Job Order

KB Home   |   Windows Print Job Order

Jobs released all-at-once with the release station’s “Release All” function are released into the corresponding Windows print queue in their original order.

However there is a case where other jobs can be printed in between this block of jobs.

This can happen when more than one Windows printer queues with different priorities feed the printer. Jobs from higher priority Windows print queues will print before jobs from lower priority queues that were released earlier.
