Do windows 7 and above devices give any clues on what documents a user sent to a printer, and if so where on the file system or registry would this evidence reside?

Click "Start," type "eventvwr” (without quotation marks) in the Search box and press “Enter.” Expand “Applications and Services Logs,” and then expand “Microsoft.” Click the “Operational” log. If enabled, you should see a list of print jobs and print events,
