Manually Clearing the Print Queue in Windows 8

Sometimes when you go to print it may get stuck in the waiting queue. This can be due to multiple issues such as a delay in communication or an error. In the end the print job may print, however, there are cases where the print job remains and since it is at the top of the list other documents will no longer print.

 

There is a way to manually clear the print queue so that you can make sure no print jobs are keeping other jobs from printing. The video below will show you how to manually clear the print queue in Windows 8.

Re: Manually Clearing the Print Queue in Windows 8

Thanks HP Expert for the clear solution to clearing print jobs in Windows 8. I read through a few other proposed solutions and they were pretty strange. Your video was clear and provided a clear and user interface appropriate method for clearing print jobs.

 

Way to go and THANKS!
