Hi guys and gals maybe you can help?

I turn on my computer and printer and it will print documents that i have already printed like the other day!

Any ideas?

Cheers

If it thinks a document wasn't completely printed -- like if you switched the power off before it had finished -- the document can stay in the print queue and automatcially reprint next time the printer is switched on.

Check Start > Settings > Printers to see if there's anything in the print queue before you switch on the printer next time.

Am I right in thinking that it only prints your last item?

or does it print several items from the previous session.

It might be worth checking the print queue before you turn the printer off.

Check the Printer setting for reprint. Start\Settings\Printers right click you printer\Properties
