Bonnie from Indiana asks:
Something happened, yesterday, that I don’t understand; and I’m hoping you may be able to provide an answer. I had my home laptop at work and needed to print out something. I have both my home and work printers installed on the laptop. I forgot that the printer was set to my home printer when I tried to print. When it didn’t print, I realized that I needed to select the work printer, so I did; and the file printed. However, when I got home, I found that the file had printed on my home printer, as well. My question is, “How could that happen?” The computer and printers are not all on the same network. I’m really puzzled by this.
Great question. When you print a document or file, it goes into the printer queue. It will stay there until you cancel the document, it comes up with an error and generally stops all documents from printing, or it connects to the printer and successfully prints. The file was held up in the queue the whole day until you got home and the computer established a connection with the printer.
