Sometimes when you try to print a document your printer won’t print because a previous document is present in the queue. Even if you try to print other documents to check, they would still remain in the queue. This can be annoying as there is no print spooler error message, and the status is “Printing.” This happens because, in Windows the print files are first sent to the program print spooler to manage it before being sent to the printer. The files stay in queue when there is a problem with a file which forces other files to be printed to remain in the queue.
Shared below are some details to reset print spooler; read on to know more.
