Managing documents refers to pausing, resuming, restarting, and canceling documents that are currently waiting in a print queue.

By default, all printers assign the Allow Print permission to the Everyone special identity, which enables all users to access the printer and manage their own documents. Users who possess the Allow Manage Documents permission can manage any users’ documents.

Windows Server 2012 R2 provides a print queue window for every printer, which enables users to view the jobs that are currently waiting to be printed.

For managing documents, use the following procedure.

  1. Open Control Panel and select Hardware, Devices and Printers. The Devices and Printers window appears.
  2. Right-click one of the printer icons and, from the shortcut menu, select See What’s Printing. A print queue window named for the printer appears, as shown in Figure 1.

  3. Select one of the menu items to perform the associated function.
  4. Close the print queue window.
  5. Close Control Panel.
