Printing Queues

There are two printing queues which are available. Printing queues will queue jobs based on the load at the printers. Several printers are in one queue, and your job will be sent to the printer with the lightest load.

If you need to send to a specific printer (e.g. you have loaded special paper into one printer), you can do so by specifying the name of that printer instead of the queue. Most of the time, though, printing queues will be the most useful way to print.
