printing only a single document, or are there other print jobs that you want to
cancel? And are all the print job yours, or are there print jobs that other

is a short explanation. Print jobs are sent to the printer as spooled files.

Administrator status. If you are using your own printer, you most likely have
Computer Administrator status. If you are printing to a shared printer, you
might have to ask the system administrator to cancel the print job for you.
Step 1: Start Notepad
To stop the print spooler and its files, we will have you create and run a

Step 3: Run the command script file
Now that you have created the command script file, you will run it. To run it,
you will copy and paste the name of the command script file in the Run box.

method, restart your computer, and then try again.
