DateTime-Sent-to-Printer as File Property Detail in Windows 10

Brass Contributor

Printer sometimes taking day(s) creates challenge (impossible) identifying printouts of different documents (footer having filename is insufficient when names can be same while different folders). 

Having time-sent-to-printer as footer to me is simplest solution (I only need to record DateTime of folder I have printed;  as match to printouts if it contains DateTime-Sent-to-Printer).

Although printer is capable of add print time to printout, it is NOT time-sent-to-printer.

DateTime-Sent-to-Printer as file attribute would ease my job to search for files printed for certain time frame. 


I have thought of following alternatives:

  1. Using printout order not viable; it is not necessarily same order sent to printer.
  2. Adding folderpath into filename as a way to differentiate (sorting) printouts is a solution but cumbersome requiring programming.
