Open the Control Panel from the Start menu, and click the Administrative Tools link. Double-click the Services icon, find and highlight the Print Spooler option, click the Stop link, then click Start once the service stops. Alternatively, double-click on Print Spooler, and click the Stop and Start buttons to restart it. If using Windows 7 or a newer version, click the Restart link immediately. To access the Services consoles via the Run dialog box, press "R" while holding down the Windows key, type ���services.msc��� in the empty field, and click OK.
To access the Command Prompt, click the Start button, type ���cmd��� in the search field, right-click the Cmd icon, and select the Run as Administrator option. Type ���net stop spooler��� as the first line, and press Enter. Once the Command Prompt window displays the message that the service has stopped successfully, type ���net start spooler���, press Enter, and close the Command Prompt once the service starts again. This should resolve issues regarding the responsiveness of the print queue and printer driver performance.Learn more about Printers
