You can generate print streams with Windows applications and options.

Print streams are saved in Windows spooler. To generate and access print streams:

  1. In Printers & Scanners select your printer.

  2. Click Open queue.

  4. Print your labels. Since your printer is paused, all print streams stay in the spooler.

  5. To access your print streams, open the file location "c:\Windows\System32\spool\PRINTERS\"

    Note

    Run your file explorer as administrator to access your print streams.

Your print streams have the extension ".SPL". Copy your print streams to some other location, then you can unpause your printer.
