If Printing Takes 45 Seconds Before Starting (or Until You Exit J.S.)
The first thing to try is to turn off print spooling for MS-DOS prompt
(right-click the Windows printer icon, choose Properties, Details, Port-
Settings and UNcheck the "Spool MS-DOS Print Jobs" box) Do this on all
computers if you have a network. If that doesn't help, or turning off
spooling is not appropriate or not available then try these steps:
Your computer consultant/helper can make these changes which
Microsoft says should speed up printing under Windows 95/98/ME.
If these sections don't already exist, add these AFTER the
[386Enh] section in the SYSTEM.INI
Note that if you have a network, you should make these changes to
ALL Windows 95/98/ME computers on the network.
The number 5 above represents approximately the number of seconds
delay. Windows defaults to about 45. It is not clear if reducing
to 1 works well, you can try it out.
