You use a computer that everyone else uses to print. Its your computer, or maybe its not.
You want to keep backups of files you print, or you are curious as to what everyone else is printing.
Maybe you want to make sure no one else is archiving your print jobs.
To grab a print job from the Windows Spooler or captue a spooler file:
- Go to "Printers and Faxes" and highlight the printer and right click and choose printer "Properties".
- Click on the "Advanced" tab.
- Check mark the "Keep printed documents" box. See below:
For every print, the Windows Spooler will generate a SPL file and save it to:
Print the SPL file with:http://www.lvbprint.de/html/splviewer1.html
When you open the SPL file, it will look like gibberish, but when you print it out, it will print out the original.
