    .PRN file ?


    I notice in my Documents folder, there is a .PRN file. It is from some time ago.

    Can someone tell me what this is please? I think it is to do with a print job.

    Is it safe to delete it?

    Thanks.

    :)

    .PRN file ?

    PRN file in C#

    C# questions are beyond the scope of this consumer-oriented peer support forum.

    It's not clear what you mean by "print ... as a label," but *.prn files -- in Windows at least -- are the raw output files (including printer control characters) from Windows printer drivers.

    In Windows, you print a *.prn file by doing a binary copy to the printer, which must be the same model as the printer driver that produced the *.prn file.

    The following is based on
    Bruce's Printing Pages

    1. If the printer is connected to a port that the Command Interpreter (Command Prompt) can access (e.g., LPT1.PRN file ? :) then from a Command Prompt

    copy /b file.prn LPT1:

    2. If the printer is connected by USB (which is not accessible from Command Prompt), share the printer and from a Command Prompt

    copy /b file.prn \\servername\sharename

    or you can map the share to an LPTn port and then use method 1

    net use LPT1: \\servername\sharename /persistent=yes

    copy /b file.prn LPT1:
