Re: Deleting Printing Queue
If they have been already printed you cannot delete them. If you have sent the jobs to printer, but they haven't been printed yet then depends on which operative system you are using.
For example in Windows XP you click on small printer icon, near to the clock at lower right hand corner to open the printer que.
IFyou cannot see the printer icon then you can open the printer que selecting in order CONTROL PANEL / PRINTERS AND OTHER HARDWARE / WIEW INSTALLED PRINTER/
at this point you will have a list of installed printers just double click on the one you need.
Double clicking on the printer will open the printer que, which is a listo files. To remove one of those files from que click the right button of mouse on it and chose cancel, after a while will be removed from printer que.
If you want to empty completely the que chose 'cancel all documents from the printer menu at the top.

turn off the printer and remove power to the printer. Job will be stored in printers memory. Go to p.c you printed from and check printer queue see if job is in printer queue on p.c as well and then delete from queue. If it does not delete from the queue go to if windows p.c the services under control panel and stop and restart the spooler service.if print job is stuck in the printer queue.
The print queue is what is locked up. Try deleting the items in the print queue.
Start by pausing the print queue. Then delete the items in the queue one by one.
When you have the last print job in the queue it will probably be jammed up in the transition between the computer and printer. Switch off the printer. This should cause the printer on the computer to become offline.
Try deleting this job abain. If it dissapears then turn the printer back on making sure the computer understands the printer is back online. Then try printing again.
If it does not dissapear then you will need to restart the computer to free up this job. When the computer is back up and running check the print queue again. If the job is gone then turn the printer back on and try printing again. If it is not gone then try once again to delete the print job and it should dissapear this time.
Once the job is gone and the print queue is empty turn the printer back on and make sure the computer understands it is back online again.
go to start-in the run or search box-put in services.msc-hit enter-look for print spooler-left click on it-hit stop-then hit start or restart. restart pc or go back to printers and faxes cancel print jobs stuck in the queue again.close printers and faxes and open it to check if queue already cleared up.that should do it.
Try pressing cancel on the printer first. Then, open the print queue by opening the printers folder, and double-clicking the printer icon for your printer. Try to select the jobs there and cancel them. If that doesn't work, turn off the printer, and wait for the title bar of the print queue to say "use printer offline". If it doesn't change on the title bar of the queue, then select "use printer offline" from the file menu of the print queue. Then try to delete the print job. If this still doesn't work, leave the printer off and reboot the computer, then try to delete the print job again if it is still in the queue. If none of these work, remove and then reinstall the printer as a last resort.
You can uninstall printer driver from library folder. Go to system preferences and delete driver from Library /Printer . Delete that folder then your printer driver is will uninstalled then reinstall the driver if you want to use it again. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.
go to administrative tools THEN SELECT SERVICES. STOP THE PRINT SPOOLER SERVICE. then see if the item is still in the print queue.. if so delete it .. but I think it'll go away when you stop the service. when it does.. restart the print spooler
