Location of Printer Test Page text in Windows XP/2003

By rhaigh ·
I need to modify the text of the Windows Printer Test Page so I can include a request for users to mail the sheets back to me telling me where the printers are (beats walking round the site looking for 400 printers).

Only problem is I cant find the file that is used to generate the test page.

Anyone got any thoughts on this.

The test page is part of the spooler DLL and can't be modified, but you could try setting up print notifications. In the Printers folder, use File>>Server Properties. There you may find something that helps!

I'd thought of using the separator page machanism but the potential volume of paper back to my desk deters me. The long winded way is to send a word document to each printer - I've done it before for smaller numbers of printers and it's a real pain.
