I bet this has probably happened to you before: you're trying to print an important document, but it just won't start. You know your printer is powered up, but it acts like it's not even attached to your computer.
Your first reaction might be to try reprinting over and over again. Then you try to fiddle with the printer controls, but don't do that quite yet. It could just be that you have a traffic jam in your print queue. The print queue is the electronic list your printer software uses to line up and prioritize requests to print documents or pictures.
If you can't manually get your printer to unjam, check out Print Queue Cleaner 2.0. It's a simple and fast program that can clear out those stuck documents in less than 30 seconds. It can also print a test page to make sure your printer is working again.
Using Print Queue Cleaner, you can test any or every printer hooked up to your computer. It's quicker and easier than doing it by hand, even for a pro, and all it takes is one click of your mouse.
To download the program, navigate to the Print Queue Cleaner 2.0 download page using my blue link buttons below. Once you're taken to Mike's Magic Box homepage, scroll down and click on the blue link at the end of the page that says "Download from HERE" and your download should begin immediately. The program may be flagged as dangerous or malicious software, but this program is free and safe to use.
When the download is complete, open and run the application file. The portable Print Queue Cleaner will automatically run without having to install anything.
Click the "Fix It!" button to purge your print spool. It's that simple. Happy printing!
