Have you ever tried to print something and have it not print just to find that there's a whole ton of documents in the printer queue? Try running this batch script!

CODE STARTS HERE:

@echo off

::CLEAR PRINT SPOOLER
net stop spooler
if exist "c:\windows\system32\spool\printers\*.shd" del "c:\windows\system32\spool\printers\*.shd"
if exist "c:\windows\system32\spool\printers\*.spl" del "c:\windows\system32\spool\printers\*.spl"
net start spooler
cls
echo.
echo.
echo PROGRAM RAN SUCCESSFULLY
echo.
echo.
echo IF YOU ARE STILL HAVING PRINTING ISSUES, UNPLUG POWER CORD TO PRINTER, WAIT 30 SECONDS AND PLUG BACK IN.
echo.
echo.
echo.
echo PRESSY ANY KEY TO CLOSE
pause >nul
