    Unable to clear the Print Queue on Windows 7 System.

    There are many files under the Printer folder under Devices and Printers, then I have selected all of them and also deleted all of them, but I refresh all of them are appearing again. I don't understand what method should be followed for clearing this Print Queue, hope you provide a better approach for this.

    I think you must have not stopped the Print spooler from Services console so this problem occur .

    Follow this easy Procedur :-

    * Click on Start

    * In start search box type in "services" and Hit Enter
    * Service console windows will open
    * Scroll to Name "Print Spooler"
    * Right click on it and click on stop
    * Now Print spooler services is stoped so it will not take any job
    * Now Press windowskey + r and type in "C:\WINDOWS\System32\spool\PRINTERS"and Hit enter
    Delete all files inside this folder
    As these are all Print jobs as these jobs are delete so it will clearall print jobs
