I'd like to know is there any files in windows which can let us know what the last printer job did? For example, when the user has pressed print in windows, no matter which program they print. That file will show how many pages or whatever information.  If so, what file is it. Or something like that  !! THANKS !

pal, that letter don't make a bit of sense.
the composition is terrible, and  you don't give any specs on your system.

The file you are looking for does not exist, sorry maybe this isn't the answer you was looking for but it is the answer. Once the print job is done it is done, there is no file kept as a record of the print job

The only place I can think of to look would be the documents menu in the Start bar.  That is, if you don't clear it regularly as I do at startup.
