See Who Printed on Shared Printer?
I just had a student print to a staff members shared printer. I thought i could easily see who printed it, but when I log in I see nothing under System Event Logs . Any ideas?

Normally it will be logged as "print" category under system on the computer that the printer is connected to.
In future you could install something like PaperCut - Print Logger - a free print job logger for Windows. to keep track on this sort of thing!

Or a more 'free' solution would be to check the "Keep list of Printed Documents" box, it keeps a record of all the print jobs then...

As already suggested, check the event logs on the machine where the printer is installed. Not the machine where the print job was sent from.
