    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    After the printer processes a print job, it stores the job in a print queue that is known as a __________.

    • A.

      Snap-in

    • B.

      Spooler

    • C.

      Driver

A spooler is a software program or service that manages the printing process by temporarily storing print jobs in a queue. This allows multiple print jobs to be processed in the order they were received, even if the printer is busy with another job. The spooler then sends the print jobs to the printer when it becomes available, ensuring efficient and organized printing.
