How can I view print jobs from the command line?

A. Windows NT provides built in ability to monitor print queues from the command line using the NET PRINT command.

To view the current print queue use syntax

C:\> net print \\<server>\<print share>

For example:

C:\&gt;net print \\LNPSPA0001\LNPRTP0017<br><br>
Printers at \\LNPSPA0001<br><br><br>
Name                         Job #      Size            Status<br><br>
LNPRTP0017 Queue           1 jobs                      *Printer Active*<br>
     saviljo                   247       120            Printing<br>
The command completed successfully.

Notice there is a single print job by user saviljo which is being printed.
