I'm the go-to guy when it comes to troubleshooting PC issues and I have seen my fair share of computer problems because of this. Issues that I dislike to troubleshoot the most are mostly printer-related. Not everything is really hard to fix though, and one of the most common issues that users experience when using printers - stuck printer queues - can be resolved fairly easily.
In the past six or so years I have covered several programs and repair options to deal with that issue. From Stalled Printer Repair and Printer Service Manager to a lightweight batch file to disable the print spooler, clear the cache folders, before enabling the spooler again.
It is always good to have options when it comes to troubleshooting programs, and Print Queue Cleaner is one of those options that you have.
The program is portable, tiny, and will run on all recent and not so recent versions of Microsoft's Windows operating system.
It is an easy to use program that you can use to clear the print queue in the Windows operating system. You do need to run the program with elevated privileges to use all of its functionality.
The latest version of the program, Print Queue Cleaner 2.0, comes with a simple interface. It lists all printers in the interface and you may test individual printers or all connected printers (including virtual printers).
A click on "fix it" clears the queue to resolve any printing issues related to the queue on the device. The developer added a new option to deal with custom print queues.
Here is what is new in Print Queue Cleaner 2:
Print Queue Cleaner is a simple program that can aid you in resolving a common issue with your printer related to the queue.
The developer website is no longer available. We have uploaded the latest release version of Print Queue Cleaner 2.0 to our own server. Note that we don't support the program in any way and have done so for archiving purposes only: print-queue-cleanerAdvertisement
