How to Cancel a Print Job

While waiting for my blog to reach its business potential, I turn to accepting printing job orders as an additional source of income. Ironically though, I can say that printing is most frustrating when situations require you to cancel a print job. That little typo error or that occasional paper jam can cost you not only wasted ink, but also sheets of paper. But what if you can cancel a print job without wasting paper and ink? What if you need not to restart the PC or unplug the printer power cord?

The method I’m about to teach you only requires a software download that will run without installation (by simply downloading and extracting the zip file). It can solve stuck or stalled print jobs at ease and so effectively you’ll be able to resume printing immediately. It can wondrously do the job when other methods such as pressing the printer’s cancel button or deleting the print job in See What’s Printing fail to do the task.

Stalled Printer Repair

Upon running, Stalled Printer Repair automatically detects any existing print jobs. When it finds at least one, the Purge Print Jobs button becomes enabled, which you can then click to delete stuck print jobs. Problem solved.

Note: The program must be run as an administrator to work. This program will work on Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7.
