How to cancell print queue?

Hello GS79,


Please find steps that i shared below;


> Write "Run" in Windows search box. 

> Write "services.msc" and find "Print Spooler" service then stop it.



> Disconnect all connection between printer and computer.

> Try delete to all pending files from spooler of printer.

> Start print spooler service again.


You can also try this method:


> Write "CMD" in Windows search box

> Right click on it and select "Run as administrator"

> Write codes which i shared below step by step in CMD

  • * net stop spooler
  • * del %systemroot%\system32\spool\printers\*.shd
  • * del %systemroot%\system32\spool\printers\*.spl
  • * net start spooler
