Direct your print job notifications.

This setting controls whether print job notification should be sent to the local computer or the computer that the user first logged on to.

Tweak for : Windows 2003, Windows 2000
It is a common practice in a network environment to send the print job messages by the user to the spooled printer. It picks them up serially or may be on priority-wise if ordered to. Printer sends back the message of job completion to the computer from where it had received the message. The user can make some changes in the registry to receive this message either on the computer, which he/she is using or from where the message was sent.

For this, go to Start > Run menu, enter “regedit” and navigate to the registry path listed below. Now, right-click and modify the Dword value “NetPopupToComputer”, in the right panel, to “1” which can direct your print jobs. However, if you want to disable the feature, change the value data to “0”.

The changes take effect after a restart or logoff.
