Right now I often print a lot of pages. About 100-200 pages front and back. Is there a tool or something I can do to add a delay between N-pages when printing on windows to rest the printer cartrigde? I'm using Canon MP 287 (Canon using thermal print)
It would be tedious but maybe.
- Set the print queue to pause.
- Print in number of pages of delay, in batches say 1-10, then 11-20, 21-30, and etc
- Pause all the jobs
- Resume the queue with the jobs still paused.
prnjobs,vbs is included with at least windows 7 and 10 C:\Windows\System32\Printing_Admin_Scripts\en-US>cscript prnjobs.vbs
list all jobs cscript prnjobs.vbs -l
Then resume one batch at a time. cscript prnjobs.vbs -j -p -m
A copy of prnjobs.vbs could be made under a new name and modified.
Modify to automatically list all jobs Resume 1 Sleep for ### seconds resume next job Repeat
