Setting printer priority

by rick In reply to Setting printer priority

1) You have to associate two logical printers with the one physical printer.
2) Set the prioriry of the printer by printer-properties-advanced Priority.

The higher the number the higher the priority.

ie Printer A priority 1, Printer B
Priority 99

Set the computers you want to print with the low priority to printer A,
and the computers you want high priority to printer b.

When two print jobs are sent at the same time the one sent to the high priority printer will be printed first.

I hope this helps.
