We used the GUI in tip 9310 ยป How do I prevent the 'This document has been sent to the printer....' message from popping up when I print a document?

Harry Bates ([email protected]), brings us DisablePrinterBaloon.zip freeware to disable the printer balloons. Just unzip DisablePrinterBaloon.zip and run DisablePrinterBaloon.exe.

You can also disable these printer balloons using REG.EXE, built into Windows XP (NT 5.1) and later, or installed on Windows 2000 from the Support Tools on the operating system CD-ROM:

REG ADD "HKCU\Printers\Settings" /V EnableBalloonNotificationsLocal /T REG_DWORD /F /D 0
REG ADD "HKCU\Printers\Settings" /V EnableBalloonNotificationsRemote /T REG_DWORD /F /D 0
