Checking printer status
To check the status of your printer before committing a print job, follow the below: click Start → Settings → Devices and Printers. Select the printer that you want to check. Right-click your selection and select View IPM Printer Status. The Enabled and Status columns reflect the current state of actual and logical destinations that could be used to process the job. If there is a backup printer defined for your printer, it will be listed in the Backup Printer column. A backup printer is a backup actual destination. To add a backup actual destination, your administrator can set the backup-destinations attribute for the printer that you want to backup. See the InfoPrint Manager Reference for more information.
