    Welcome to the forum! Please read this topic to learn how to post code correctly and other useful info for new members.

    What you describe is not possible. Java cannot be used to 'reprogram' what the host operating system has already put in motion. I don't think what you describe is possible with any programming language, but I could be wrong. Learn more about the print queue in Windows (a control panel?) and how it can be accessed and influenced by another process, if at all.
