I know how to get output to show in cmd and I also know how to get the output to print to a file. The problem comes in when I try to print to a file. Of course, there is no output on the screen. Is there a way to do both? I know I can write to a file and then use the TYPE command to print the file but I would like it to write to a file as well as to the screen in real time. That way I can see if a large batch file locks up and where without having to search a file. Does this option even exist?

If you have a virtual printer (PDF printer like BullZip, PDFPrint, or something else) maybe it is your default printer and when you chose the option "print" you need to choose the the right printer (in your situation
HP Officejet Pro L7780 ) Good luck.
The CMD, or Command, is used to run DOS commands. Click Start, Run, type CMD and press Enter. At the cursor on the "DOS Screen", type ATTRIB *.*. That will show you the attributes of the files. (Read, Archive, System and Hidden) Now type HELP. That will show you the commands you can run. CMD is very useful for deep troubleshooting. Today, not so much because when something quits working, we just buy a new one.
why dont you just type it on the notepad..
ex : open a notepad editior, then write IP config /all - if you want to view your whole network status..
while IP Config /release - is to released the desired network, then ipconfig /renew - set or refresh your network..
If you only want to have a documentation for your ip, then much better to write it down on the notepad editor.
hope it can help...
Did you clear the printing queues in the printer icon. If not, you need to delete, turn of the printer and turn it on again.
If still problem occurs, there is problem on buffer. To clear this
Go to start menu
Choose Run and you will go to DOS system
Type C: and press enter if you are not in C: drive
Type the letter "cmd" and press enter
Type the word " net stop spooler" and press enter and exit
Now go to C:Drive
Choose Windows folder and show content if all files are not viewable
Choose system32 folder
Choose spool folder
Choose printer folder
And delete all the printing jobs pending
then go back again to cmd
type the word "net start spooler" press enter and exit.
Restart your computer and restart also your computer. And try to print again.
Click Start - Run Type CMD - hit Enter Type NET STOP SPOOLER Goto C:\Windows (or WinNT) \System32\Spool\Printers The files in there are your stuck print jobs - delete all of them Back in your CMD window type NET START SPOOLER
Hello you can delete the print job manually. you need to have administrative right on the computer to do this.
go to run> input "cmd" write net stop spooler go to %SystemRoot%\system32\spool\printers or(System32\SpoolPrinters ) delete all files that ends with-> .SPL and .SHD
then write in cmd "net start spooler" check your printer job now and it should be gone.
