Windows 7: Queuing Printing Tasks

Queuing Printing Tasks

I've got multiple documents I want to print, but I'm sick of running backwards and forwards between the printer and computer in order to press the print button whilst at the same time checking and retrieving each printout. I'd much prefer to stay at the printer whilst the computer does all the commands automatically. So, is there a way to queue the printouts so the computer does it automatically?

I'd ask the question of "why is it necessary to touch the printer at all except to add paper or change cartridges", most Windows setups allow sending the job then going on to the next job and the next, etc. An issue is that if a print job fails one usually can't get the next job to print without first clearing up the first job. Maybe a setting to insert a blank page between jobs will help?
