how to turn on printer spool

The printer spool works by storing files sent to print until they can be printed, thus it is a useful application if you have a networked printer, or require multiple printing jobs simultaneously. To turn on the Printer Spool, navigate to the 'Administrative Tools' menu which can be accessed from the Control Panel.  Inside the 'Administrative Tools' menu, select Services, which will produce a list of services available for use on your computer.  Scroll down this list until you see 'Printer Spool' which will be either activated or not.  Right click, and scroll to 'Properties' to enter the properties dialog for the printer spool.  At this point you can choose to start, or restart, the printer spool for your system.
