How can I create a desktop shortcut to a printer's queue on Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit?


For any future searchers, what worked for me is a little different from what's in the accepted answer, so I added it in the comments for the accepted answer.

Just open Devices and Printers, Right-click the printer, and click "Create shortcut".

It will put the shortcut on your desktop and you can then move it wherever you want.

You can see the one I created, and opened by clicking the shortcut to the right in this screenshot:

I was just coming to delete this question. I did it by dragging the See What's Printing button to the desktop. When I did what you were saying, the shortcut opened printer's main page and I still had to click on "See what's printing" or "Printer:ready" to see the queue. But, thanks just the same. – CChriss Aug 1 '11 at 23:48
