Has it ever happened to you to wish to delete some prints queued in the Print Job, only to find out that you can not do it? No matter how many times you try to delete them: nothing happens. In some cases the whole situation gets worse since, right after trying to delete the prints, not only you won’t succeed in your attempt, but you also won’t be able to print anything else for some minutes (if you are lucky). That’s what you call being stuck. Here is a smart trick to delete the Print Job immediately and with no “side effects”.
- Click Start.
- In the Search box, type Services and hit Enter.
- On the right-pane, locate Print Spooler.
- Right-click on it and from the menu select Stop.
- Now, locate this folder: C:\Windows\System32\spool\PRINTERS and delete all its content.
- Refresh the Print queue.
