Sending a Print Job

1. In the document you want to print, select File then Print, to bring up the print dialog box. There will be a drop down menu to select a printer. Select which printer  (i.e. HP_BW_FollowMe) you want to send the job to.

    - If you’re using Google Chrome and the WSC printers are not showing up, select the Print using system dialog option in the lower left.

2. The print dialog box is where you can change the print settings for the document you’re about to print. Select the settings such as the number of copies, two sided or one sided print, page range, how many slides per page if it’s a PowerPoint, etc., and click Print.

    - In some applications to select a two sided or a one sided print, select Copies & Pages, select Layout from the dropdown menu, and under Two-Sided select Long-Edge binding if you want it two-sided or off if you want one sided.

3. In some cases it takes a few seconds, but another box will pop up, this time from PaperCut. If you haven’t logged into PaperCut recently it’ll ask you to log in.

4. Next, you’ll get a print job confirmation window with the option to select which budget code to charge for the print. For students, it is the Personal Account.

5. Select Print to send your print job to the printer.

6. Finally, once the job has been successfully submitted, PaperCut will send you a notification to let you know the job has been “released to your queue”.
