Retrieving previous print job on printer

Hp 6210 ink jet.  I printed a court document on a court-generated form.   For reasons I don't want to get into, I shredded the form and was all ready to print a revised version.  Unfortunately, in attempting to open the tab containing the document, I ran my cursor over the "x".   As you know, you can't hit "backspace" on these.

So I'm wondering if, by chance, there's some memory feature in the printer that will allow me to go back a couple of print jobs.

There is a small chance the document is still in your browser cache.

Location of the cache folder depends on which operating system you are running.

Inkjet printers do not generally have enough memory to contain an entire document.  They depend on the host computer to rasterize the document line by line.  sjklein42 is correct; if the document was printed from a browser, the cache may still contain it.  Otherwise, Windows flushes spool files after the job has finished printing.

With the ATEN CE624, you can now enjoy a high-quality visual experience powered by HDBaseT technology and the convenience of a single Cat6 cable to transmit uncompressed video with zero latency and multi-streaming for dual-view applications where remote access is required.

By default, the location of temporary Internet files (for Internet Explorer) is

C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files

( For Win2000 and Windows XP)

Go in with Windows Explorer, sort by Last Accessed Date, and look for your file.
