You don't have to go so far as to uninstall the printer just go to services (control panel > administrative tools > services) and turn off the print spooler service (right click and choose stop) then turn off the printer. Right click the printer (start menu > printers and faxes > the printer that is having trouble) and select cancel all documents. Restart the print spooler service and turn the printer back on. Your pending documents should be gone.

Try disconnecting the printer from the computer and then go to start, settings and printers. Delete the default printer, then try deleting the qued print jobs. Once you have done that, reconnect the printer and Windows should recognize it as the drivers are already installed. Now try printing.

Let me know how it works out for you.

What to do if after canceling the printing in queue document its status is still showing deleting ?


Give it a few minutes. Sometimes it takes awhile to delete the document.

If that fails, turn off the printer, wait a minute, then turn it back on. The document should be deleted.

Printer failing to print


start --> run --> services.msc

press enter / click on ok

scroll down to print spooler and right click on it and click on restart and then go back into printers and faxes and right click on printer and cancel all documents or delete the print job

If that fails to work you may need to use the utility that came with your printer to cancel it - short of that you can just turn the printer off for about 5 seconds and back on.
