Where i could see the printer spooler?


I open the run command you can type: net start spooler
(You will get a message that says the print spooler service has started)
If you still have issues open the run command and type: services.msc
it will display a list, where you can find print spooler.

From there you can right-click on it and set it so it is started and runs automatically.

Operation could not br completed. The print spooler service is not running


Hi There,

If your print spooler service is not running, then follow the below steps to get it working :

Step 1 :
* Start > run > services.msc > ok
* Select the service name called print spooler from the list.
* Check the status on the print spooler service, if it is stopped, then right click and select start or restart.
* Then the spooler service will start working....

Step 2 : ( NOTE :USE THIS STEP ONLY WHEN YOUR STEP 1 DOESN'T WORK )
In this case, we assume that the print spooler service is gone bad and we would have to recreate the spooler service.

* Start > run > cmd > ok
* Type: sc delete spoolsv (this will delete the corrupted spooler for us to create a new print spooler)
* Reboot the system and after rebooting the computer back.

* Start > run > cmd > ok
* Type: sc create spoolsv (this will create a new print spooler service)
* Reboot the system and this time the print spooler service is a new and fresh spooler and it should work normal and perfectly.

Enjoy printing !!
