Changing Printers

You may change the default printer assigned to your station (e.g. if it is not working). In the back-boned (networked) labs the printer selection is accomplished within Windows. The printer can usually be selected in the individual software’s print option. To do so:

  1. Choose File | Print… from within the application.
  2. You will be presented with the Print dialog box.
  3. Your print request (print job) will be sent to the printed listed in the Name: field.
  4. To choose a different printer click on the drop down box (down arrow) of the Name: field then select the desired printer.

Deleting Print Jobs

At the Print Release Stations, you may check the status of your print job. You can also delete a print job by selecting Cancel to the right of your document.

Wireless Printing

Wireless printing is now available at the College. For students you will be able to send your print jobs to the Open Access Labs, Library and Classrooms that have network printers with Papercut release stations and Card readers attached.  Please see the instructions below on how to add a printer wirelessly. We now utilize follow me printing. We now print to virtual printers that allow you to go to any print release station, can be in a lab, classroom etc and print your job.
