Print Multiple Files from Command Line
2Printer is a command-line tool that can batch print multiple documents and images from a specified location to any printer. With a range of useful parameters, it can be used on a workstation, server, or integrated into other software.
Command Line Syntax and Usage
2Printer can print from Windows Сommand Prompt, PowerShell, a script, or another command line interface. To view the entire list of all switches and parameters, open a command-line interpreter, and execute 2Printer.exe command. You can modify it to:
- Print all files in a folder on a selected printer:
2Printer.exe -src "C:\In\*.*" -prn "Xerox 2050"
- Print all files from a list in a strictly defined order, as a single print job:
2Printer.exe -src "@C:\List\files.txt" -prn "Xerox 2050" -props spjob:yes
- Print all PDFs in a folder using certain printer tray, in duplex mode:
2Printer.exe -src "C:\In\*.pdf" -prn "Xerox 2050" -props tray:4 duplex:vertical
Batch Print Documents
2Printer can batch print all files from a folder or an entire list of files within one session. Process all or certain file types (e.g., .docx only). You can define the source, the printer tray, and more – all from CMD or terminal. When printing many files at once, you can set a strict file order to print them out in sequence.
Different Printers Supported
2Printer is compatible with office printers, MFPs, barcode printers, and plotters – any local or network devices that are connected to the workstation or an application server. You can specify a printer tray and paper size, if necessary, when sending print tasks to printers shared on a business network.
