You may be interested what is print spooling and why do PC need it when it has so many problems. But, print spooling as a process, and Print Spooler Service in Windows OS as part responsible for this, are essential. Spooling (print spooling) in general means sending tasks (print jobs) to special queue or buffer which is nothing but “memory sector” on your hard drive. For example for printing in Windows such tasks are stored in C:\Windows\System32\Spool\Printers folder. Spooling prepares a file (usually a data file) for printing, scanning, emailing, faxing, or sending to a device or system that is currently busy with another task. For printing such files are stored in .spl format. Why? The matter is such processes like printing or scanning are time consuming. CPU can process this file in milliseconds but printer needs time to print it, scanner needs time to scan a page. And they need several seconds to finish this.
Besides, if there are no print spooler you will have to send a document to printer one by one instead of just sending them to spooler all in once and it will do the rest. But if other spooling systems in windows doesn’t have serious problems, print spooling causes major problems for home and, mostly, for office users as inability to print for a day or two is sometimes costly. Yes, beginning from Windows 2000, Windows XP and finishing in Windows Vista or Windows 7 there are still huge problems with Print Spooler subsystem.
