Go to Search, type services.msc and open Services

Find Print Spooler service

Right-click on Print Spooler, and click on Restart

While you are there check that the Print Spooler start up type is set to Automatic.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

You can even simply restart the machine, 90% of the time this is all you need to do and it will start with Windows.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Restarting the computer, as given, is a good idea and on Win 10 this has more effect than turning the computer right off then starting it up again.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
