Update: Get Free Tips - Accelerate your Print Jobs

How can I perform other tasks on my computer while shooting prints?

By default, Windows uses the spooling technique for print jobs. The Print Spooler is a background program that writes data to temporary files in your C:\Windows\Temp directory. The final print command is sent to the print through the spooler, allowing you to perform other tasks while you print.

While this might be an effective way of multitasking, there might be numerous occasions where you may need to simply print multiple documents or photographs. This is when the spooler might actually slow the printing process by writing data temporary files and then printing.On most printers, you can turn off the spooler by going to "Start | Settings | Printers". Right click on the icon of the printer you're using.
