If you want to print many files on your printer, then you have to print them one by one. You give the command to print one document, wait for the printer to process it and then you can print the next document. This can take a very long time especially if you have an inkjet printer. Moreover, you have to open all the documents in their respective viewer programs in order to print them. For example, you have to open PDF files in Adobe PDF Reader, open DOC files in Microsoft Office and so on – before you can print them. But if you use a free software called Print Conductor then you can save your valuable time and print all the documents in one go – without having to open them or waiting for the files to be printed.
Print Conductor is a simple batch printing utility for Windows. If you regularly have to open and print a large number of files, then this elegant tool can save a great deal of your time. Once you tell it which files to print, Print Conductor automates the rest of the process.
You can download Print Conductor from the fCoder group website. It is available as a setup installer. The download size if around 3 megabytes, but it does not require any third party tools like Microsoft .NET in order to work. After the installation, you can run it from its desktop shortcut. The user interface of Print Conductor is pretty simple. You can either drag and drop the files that you want to print, add a file by clicking on Add Documents or add a folder containing documents by clicking on Add Folder. There are options to import or export the list of documents in case you need to print the same documents all over again in future.
You can select the printer from the drop-down list (in case you have more than one printers). You can also change the printing preferences for your printer by clicking on the Settings next to the printer list. Once all this is set, you can click on the Start button at the lower-right corner to start the batch printing. While Print Conductor is printing your documents, you can sit back and enjoy a hot cup of coffee.
Print Conductor works by interacting with viewer applications through their OLE/COM interfaces. This means that you must have the viewer applications like Adobe PDF Reader, AutoDesk AutoCAD and various components of Microsoft Office (e.g, Microsoft Word) installed on your PC for Print Conductor to work. If you do not have these applications installed, then Print Conductor would simply ignore the files supported by them.
Print Conductor can make your life easy if your job requires printing of hundreds of documents everyday. It works with both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and 8. It supports printing of PDF, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Visio, AutoCAD and other types of documents. So if you have thousands of documents waiting to be printed, then give Print Conductor a try and say goodbye to your worries.
