You know that moment when you have to desperately have to print something and there is a job in the printer queue which will not die without a restart of your computer and/or the printer and you curse and sear about how much you hate windows and printers??????
Copy the following into a text file and save as KillPrintQueue.cmd
net stop spooler
net start spooler
save it in your dropbox so you don’t lose it from machine to machine.
JOY TO THE WORLD !!!!
One thought on “How to easily clear your windows printer queue”
I found this trick a couple of weeks ago. Works great normally, but for some reason my HP printer *still* locks to the print files even after shutting down the service, so its, shutdown, reboot, then delete. Isn’t windows printing lovely!
