Unable to print word 2010 document




Assuming the printer is setup properly, and able to print from PDF, notepad or other software and also able to print from printer driver test page.

But when printing a specific word document in Word 2010, it will just show "Not responding" the document will hang and will not print.

There is no restriction set on the document but cannot print.

Try steps below:

Click on the "File" tab, click on the "Review" menu.

From the "Review" tab, select "tracking" change the option from:

"Final: Show Markup" to "Final".

Check image below:


Save the document or save it to a different file name.

And try printing again, if everything goes right the document will be able to print.

Paper tray settings will also cause a problem with printing the document.

Documents from another party that retain printer settings on the document will not print if the printer of the other party does not have same settings on what is currently retain on Page Layout of the word document.

Check out this link on how to change paper tray or paper source settings.

Copy a single file using robocopy

Copy a single file using robocopy from a local folder to a shared folder on the network.
A simple rule of thumb before any disaster strike, don't interchange the source and the destination.

If source and destination is mistakenly reverse, files might get overwritten. To avoid any loss of data do a test with a dummy file to ensure things work perfectly.
Robocopy [source][destination]   [file to be copied]
robocopy c:\local_c_folder  \\PC_network\shared_folder   file_to_be_copied_xx.txt
The command will be completed successfully provided the network access right has no issues.

Robocopy works quite good on large files. A simple copy or xcopy command will also work but the speed might vary.

Robocopy is free it can be accessed from command line. No need to install the resource kit tool if the operating system is Windows 7 or newer version.

Copy files with selected file extension using PowerShell and Robocopy:

$extension = ('.pdf', '.jpg', '.txt')
gci d:\WorkFolde…

WMIC List printers

WMIC comes handy if you are a command line junkie.

To list printers via command line type:

wmic printer get name  = = = this will list all the printers installed on a workstation

To list the printer name and the port name of the printers, type this command:

wmic printer get name, portname

Type this command below to list the printer drivers:

wmic printer get name, drivername

To get the device id:

wmic printer get name, deviceid

You can deploy a batch file startup script to check which printer is installed on the computers and redirect the output to a shared folder.

PowerShell can also be used in conjunction with WMIC command:
