I read your post about the troubles you are having deleting the printer for your Windows 10 system, and I hope I can help you through the issues. I am thinking there could be print jobs stuck in the print queue, so am recommending some things to try to get through that.
Open yourStartscreen by selecting the Windows button on the bottom left hand side of your computer screen or by selecting the Windows key on the bottom left of your keyboard, to the right of the Ctrl button
In the Start screen typeRun
Click on Run to launch the Run dialogue box
In the Run box typeservices.mscand selectOK
When the Services window opens scroll down until you seePrint Spooler
Click on Print Spooler once just to highlight it
If you seeStartin the top left hand corner than that indicates that your Print Spooler is in fact Stopped (not good). But we will leave this for now.
If you seeStoporRestartin the top left hand corner than this indicates that your Print Spooler is actually Started.Please click on Stop to temporarily Stop the service.
Minimizethis window as we will need to come back here
Step 2: Check Spooler Folder:
