HP Printer prints off a page with just a username after every print job.

Every time a user sends a job to the printer it prints off a seperate page with just their username.  It is wasting a lot of paper.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Turn off the setting in the printer that prints a "Cover Page"

If I understand correctly the printer is shared over a network. In this case if several people use the same printer and send a document containing say 20 pages for printing and the printed documents pile up it could get ugly when they try to find their document in the pile. So this feature could be quite useful in mid-size and large office environments.

I believe this is called a "Separator Page" and it's purpose is exactly that to separate the printed documents in the printing device's tray. I don't have a server 2008 around but it should be pretty standard:


1.

Start Menu -> Run... -> Type: control printers -> hit "Enter"

2.

Select the printer in question -> Properties -> Advanced tab

3.

Look for a "Separator Page" button (I think it sould be in bottom-right corner)

4.

Blank the field pointing to the *.sep file and confirm on your way out.
