Changing printer queues

5 pts.
Tags:

   There is a great deal of information available on line on how to clear a print queue.  What I need is to move a document from one print queue to another.  I printed tickets (which went to a offline printer I can't use) and can not reprint.    Thanks for any help.

Software/Hardware used:
Vista Home (unfortunately) & HP D110 all in one printer

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

1 Click the “Start” button on the left side of the task bar. Click “Printers and Faxes” in the menu that appears, launching a new window.

2 Double click the icon for the printer that you want to transfer a print job from. Look for the “Printer” menu, then click the “Properties” button.

3 Click the tab labeled “Ports.” If the printer you wish to send the print job to is on the same print server as the other printer, click the port assigned to the printer you wish to send the print job to. Click the “Ok” button to save your selection.

4 Click “Add Port” if you want to transfer a print job to a printer on a different print server. Click “Local Port” then click “New Port.” Type in the blank box two forward slashes, the name of the print server for the printer you wish to send the print job to, one forward slash and the name of the printer you wish to send the print job.
