Picture this scenario.

You have a bunch of documents to be printed and the contents are not desirable to be public.  ( e.g. Your pay slip )

The printer is always busy and colleagues hanging around at all times.


Here is a solution which have been around for a long time:


Ever seen this option ?



Hint: its on the properties of the printer driver


When used, the printer will print only when the PIN is typed into the printers control panel.



Dependency: you may not always find this option for all printers. Reason : your printer driver does not support this feature. ( don’t call Microsoft and complain )
