[2023/4/14 Update] Printing

This page is being updated. More updates will be forthcoming.


  • You can print from any satellite computer room printer regardless of where you requested printing.
  • One color page is counted as five monochrome pages in your print quota.
  • Please check this page to check the remaining pages within the quota, and so on. You can also check it on the printer’s touch panel.
  • In the previous system, only color printers were available for both color and monochrome (B&W) printing. The new system, however, has two types of printers: one for monochrome (black and white) printing and one for color printing.
  • Even if the monochrome (B&W) setting is made, the number of sheets printed will be counted as one color sheet (equivalent to five B&W sheets) when printing on a color-only printer. Please check the printer you are using carefully when setting up printing.
  • Please be careful as it may become unintentionally color printing unless you consciously change the setting
  • Note added on 3/23/2023: For PDF files, please make color printing settings in the printer properties (Windows system dialog), not in the application. Otherwise, we have confirmed that monochrome printing will occur even if you use a printer dedicated to color printing. Please be careful with the settings when using color printing.
  • Added on 2023/4/11: Print jobs were left paused and other users could not use the printer. Therefore, the function to pause printing in progress has been disabled.
  • Please note that pressing the cancel button on the printer will cancel the printing.

You can print out a PDF from a private computer using a printer of the Zengaku Computer System. But please note that in one of the following cases an error message will appear and you cannot print it:

  • The PDF file is password-protected.
  • The PDF file is prohibited from printing.

You can also select a file in the cloud (e.g. Google Drive or OneDrive), but it will not upload properly and cannot be printed.
To print a file in the cloud, download the file to the device and then select the file to print.
