Solved How to delete items in print queue

Dell / Inspiron 17r
December 14, 2020 at 07:49:17
Specs: windows 10, 2.3/8
I have three Excel files that are "stuck" in the printer queue. When I tried to delete them it says "deleting" but nothing happened. So I tried to reprint them which happened but the files remained in the queue,

Thank you.
Brian W

Have you tried rebooting the printer? The PC?

As it's Win 10 you could also try "Restarting" Windows (rather than shutting down and starting up again). Restart is more effective.

T-R-A,

Thank you for your response. I rebooted both the printer and the computer but that did not solve the problem.

Jeff Root,

Thank you for your response. I wrote the .bat file and it worked; the “stuck” files printed out.

Thanks again,
Brian W
