A network directory that temporarily stores print jobs from any number of network users. The print queue stores the jobs in a first-in, first-out order, and waits for the print server to take the jobs and send them to the printer.
A file (or set of files) which the print daemon uses so that applications which wish to use the printer do not have to wait until the print job they have sent is finished before they can continue. It also allows multiple users to share a printer.
A print queue is a list of documents waiting to be printed on the printer. In the print queue, you can see information such as the size of the document, who sent the document, and status information for printing.
