Hi, if showing, right click printer icon on bottom of screen. Menu if showing, click jobs waiting.

Right click on the work you wish to cancel, menu click delete, that should clear the box of the print job.

Alternative. Click Start/Printers & Devices/Right Click Default Printer/Click Properties/Click See Whats printing/Right click print job menu/Click dropdown Delete.

I would like to cancel a print job without losing all of my memory card picture selections. Seems rather silly to lose all your selections if something goes awry with your printer output.


If you are using Windows, you can cancel a print job by opening your Start menu (usually the bottom left corner of your screen) then open Devices and Printers or Printers and Faxes depending on your version of Windows.

Double left-click the name of your printer
Right-click the name of the print job you want to cancel and select cancel print job or right-click a blank part of the printer box and select cancel all print jobs.

I tried to cancel printing jobs once in progress and had no succe


Printers will hold the documents in the memory of the printer. Windows holds the documents until they are received by the printer.
Go to the printer and cancel the job, then open the printer by double clicking on it in Printer and Faxes (if in XP) and cancel the document from the menu while the document is highlighted. (document, cancel)
A trick I have used is to remove the paper from the printer, wait until the last sheet is printed and turn off the printer. Windows will pop up with an error that includes cancel the print job.

How do I cancel a print job sent to the Ricoh Aficio 2018D? It is no longer in my print queue, but printer is still printing all 480 pages


You may have to go to the printer and click on Status or printer jobs and cancel the job from the printer. It appears the printer has the whole job already spooled in memory

Unable to cancel print queue


You can cancel a print job from within Windows by going to Control Panel -> Printers and double-clicking on the appropriate printer. Right-click the print job you want to cancel and select Cancel from the context menu. Anything already sent to the printer will continue to print.

You can also cancel a print job from the printer by pressing Cancel on the control panel. This applies to whatever is currently printing.
(You may want to remove any paper from the paper tray first.)

Clicking the cancel print icon stops the job from continuing to spool, but whatever is still in the printer's memory will continue to print until exhaused or the job is cancelled from the printer's control panel.

I have (4) documents to print, but it won't print. It says: 4 document(s) pending owner


To cancel a print job in Windows you can use one of the following two methods:

CANCELLING A PRINT JOB WITH THE PROGRESS METER:
When you send a print job to the printer, the Status Monitor will appear in the bottom right corner of your screen. Another printer icon for the PROGRESS METER will also appear in the taskbar while printing is taking place. This PROGRESS METER is there so you can manage print priorities or cancel print jobs.

1. Highlight the print job in the PROGRESS METER box.
2. Click on DOCUMENT and CANCEL, or, right click on the job name and left click CANCEL or DELETE.
3. Confirm cancelling the print job.

CANCELLING A PRINT JOB FROM THE PRINTERS WINDOW:
If no PROGRESS METER appears, you can access the document queue in this fashion:

1. Open START, SETTINGS, CONTROL PANEL, PRINTERS (START, CONTROL PANEL, PRINTERS and FAXES in Windows XP).
2. Right click on your Epson printer name, left click PURGE PRINT JOBS (98,ME), or CANCEL ALL DOCUMENTS (2000,XP). (Or, double-click on the printer name to see and modify the status of documents in queue.)
3. Confirm cancelling all documents.

Keep in mind that once information has been sent to the printer it resides in the spooling folders within Windows. It may a while for printing to stop as this data clears the system.

If the printer continues to print (ie multiple copies of a cancelled job, or garbled print) remove the rest of the paper from the printer and allow it to run out. Once an "out of paper" type error appears on your screen, cancel the documents. Once all print job information has deleted, reload the paper and press the paper feed button once to clear the red light and return the printer to a ready state.
