The panel notification icon is a printer icon that is displayed in panel notification area of the desktop to notify you when:
One or more print jobs are processing
One or more printers have been discovered
To get more information, click the printer icon.
If one or more print jobs are processing normally, a Job List window opens for each printer queue that has a pending print job.
If one or more printer queues have been discovered, the Printer Queue Properties dialog or the Print Manager application opens, allowing you to check the configuration of the new printer queues.
Notification messages that are not manually closed disappear after 5 seconds.
Preferences for notification messages can be viewed and changed in the Printer Preferences dialog. For more information, see Managing Print Manager and Printer Preferences.
