How to Clear the Printer Queue/Spooler In Windows 7/8/10

132 ratings | 37815 views
This tutorial will show you guys how to clear stuck print jobs. Have you ever run into the situation where you try to print something and nothing happens? You wait for it to print, but the job doesn’t go through? There are a ton of reasons why a print job may not actually print, but one of the common causes is that the printer queue has a stuck print job. This can happen for a number of reasons. Let’s say you tried to print something a few hours back, but the printer was off. You ended up not needing the document and you forgot about it. Then you come back and try to print. The print job is added to the queue and if the previous job didn’t get removed automatically, it will be behind that print job that never got printed. Sometimes you can manually go in and delete the print job, but sometimes you just can’t get rid of it! In this type of case, you have to clear the print queue manually. In this article, I’ll show you the steps to clear the print queue. This tutorial will apply for computers, laptops, desktops,and tablets running the Windows 10, Windows 8/8.1, Windows 7 operating systems.Works for all major computer manufactures (Dell, HP, Acer, Asus, Toshiba, Lenovo, Samsung).

Extremely grateful for this video, Thanks. I did have issues following. My computer did not show (services) had to find that and it did not show (Local Drive (c:) ) I had to find. Since my knowledge is so limited it took awhile. I was successful in-spite of my lacking knowledge. I am still don't know why the doc would not clear or delete when I tried several time. Thanks again

What to do if this doesn’t work??????
MDTechVideos (7 months ago)
Do you perhaps have several printers with the same name?
Annija Būda (7 months ago)
MDTechVideos no, there is still that document.

How can it not "work"? This is a textbook demonstration of clearing your print spooler. Do you mean your printer is not printing, which is a different problem?
