The activity clears all jobs from the queue assigned to the printer. If the printer name is not provided, the activity will be performed for the default printer.
The activity gets data from the queue assigned to a specific printer. If the printer is not specified, the default one is used. Data is returned as <DataTable>.
This activity returns the name of the default system printer as a string. So for output, you have to use <string> variable.
This activity returns a list of <string>s with names of all system printers (also not-real ones like print to PDF or print to OneNote). For output you have to use a list of strings (System.Collections.Generic.List<System.String>).
Stops provided printer name (or for the default system printer if the name is not provided). It doesn’t stop jobs in the queue, it stops the whole printer as hardware.
It has the same effect if the user opens the queue for the printer, and chooses menu Printer -> Pause Printing.
This activity gives your Robot the ability to print any file for which you have assigned in the system default application that can print this file.
Printing is based on default applications for extension. So, i.e: you will not be able to print *.doc file without MS Word application installed.
NOTE: Each application will be opened for a few seconds, but will be also closed automatically!

Takes as input printer name (which can be obtained using List Printers activity) or uses the default system printer.
As an output, it returns a dictionary of (string, Boolean). String is a status name and Boolean is false or true for a specific status. Your printer has to report specific status i.e. printer door is open to the system, otherwise, it will not be returned by this activity.
If the printer has the status ‘Paused’, it resumes print to work.
This activity can be used to change/set the default system printer. You should use printer name (which can be obtained using the List Printers activity). Name – Input – should be provided as <string>.
