When you follow these steps, the print job will appear at the printer immediately (without having to swipe your Brown ID). For this reason, you should not use this method for confidential documents

  6. You will be presented with a list of printers. Click a printer name to select that printer. 
  7. Your printout will immediately be sent to that printer. It will appear without you having to swipe your ID.
