Welcome to the TDMD of Daily Tip Podcast. My name is Marcel Lewin—the digital media dude.
Today’s tip is for Leopard and how to auto hide the printer queue, so let’s get started.
Okay, so here we are at my desktop, I’m going to use a plain all text edit application to show you something quick, and I just wrote a simple letter test here. And at the bottom my doc and what I’m going to do is I’m going go ahead and print this document. And you see he is asking for the printer to print, I am going to go ahead and click on print and what happened is it just sent it to the printer which is not a big deal. But I don’t know if any of you have notice this, the printer queue remains in you’re doc always. And that is a very annoying feature in my personal opinion with Leopard.
Now, I was thought I had live with this and what I would do is just click, right click on it and click on quit, but there’s a better way of doing this. You can just right click on the printer queue and there is this Auto Quit function. When you click on that, your printer queue will quit immediately after printing.
So I am going to go ahead and click this. I’m going to go ahead and print again this document. We click print and you see here my queue is being sent and then it goes away. And that’s it, so if you want to get rid of that annoying printer on your doc just click on right mouse, Auto Quit, and you should be set to go.
Hope you enjoy today’s tip until the next one, this is Marcel Lewin, the digital media dude, chau.
