I've had this problem with every PC I've ever used, so either I'm doing something wrong or there is a major bug in WinXP.
What I did was: realized I printed the wrong document, an 80 pg doc., oops! So the first thing I do is go to the printer icon in the system tray and double click, then I right click the print job and select 'cancel'. Nothing happens. (it says "deleting print job" but it never deletes. So I turn off the printer, this stops the printing but the job is still in que and the next time I try to print the correct document it's stuck behind the one the one that is "deleting".
I even reboot the PC, and try to print the correct document but the 80pg. doc starts printing again!! ARGHHH!!!
Is it just me or is there something wrong the funcionality of this feature??? I'm not sure how but after several minnutes of rebooting, turning off the printer, cancelling the print job and pulling out my hair, the print job finally goes way.
What is the official way to cancel a print job?
Thanks in advance!!
