How To Disable Yellow Print Confirmation Popups In Windows

March 9th, 2008

The Problem: When I send anything to my networked printer, Windows XP pops up a yellow confirmation bubble telling me the item printed. How can I turn that annoying option off?

The Solution: In Control Panel, choose Printers and Faxes. Click File, Server Properties, and select the Advanced tab. Near the bottom, uncheck the box for “Notify when remote documents are printed” and also uncheck the box for “Show informational notifications for network printers”.

In Vista, follow the same steps, but uncheck “Show informational notifications for network printers”.
