Tekk Tip: Reset the Print Spooler for Those Devious Printers

Print Spooler
     Here is a quick tip on how to get a damn printer back to working.  If a printer isn't printing and the print jobs aren't at the printer yet.  Check the computer or print server's print queue.  Are there jobs in there still and not being sent the printer for seemingly no reason.  The in Windows search look for services.msc.  One of the items will be Print Spooler.  Right-click and restart that sucker.  Should help you out in a lot of cases.  Either way this should be a standard troubleshooting step for fixing printers.
