You can use the Print Management snap-in to view extended features for a printer. Extended view is useful when you want more information about the status of a print job, its owner, the number of pages, the size of the job, when it was submitted, its port, its priority, and other advanced job properties. In the Print Management snap-in, extended view displays beneath the columns in the right pane.

To show extended features for your printer
  1. Open Print Management.

  2. In the left pane, click Print Servers, click the applicable print server, right-click Printers, and then click Show Extended View.


    To display or hide columns in extended view, select a printer. On the Jobs tab, right-click the column heading row, and then click the name of the column that you want to display or hide.

Additional considerations

  • To open Print Management, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Print Management.

  • In a domain with Internet Protocol security (IPsec) enabled, Web Services for Devices (WSD) printers must support and be configured for IPsec in order for printer events to be logged. IPsec does not allow non-IPsec compliant WSD printers to send data to a printer server that is in a domain with IPsec enabled.
