Correct steps order for getting rid of unfinished print jobs

If you have some documents hanging in your printer’s jobs list that I cannot get rid off, then remember about correct order of steps that you must undertake in order to resolve this issue.

These are:

  • reset printer’s spooler:
    • open Start Menu and type Services,
    • hit Enter to confirm running this app,
    • scroll down list to find Print Spooler item,
    • right-click it and select Restart from its context menu.
  • and clear the queue:
    • open Start Menu and type Printers,
    • hit Enter to confirm running this app,
    • find your printer and click Open queue,
    • use Printer > Cancel All Documents menu item.

That’s all folks!
