If you have Windows 10, these instructions will do the trick:

  1. From the Desktop, hold down the Windows key and press R. Into the Run window, typeservices.msc and hit enter.
  2. Browse down to the print spooler service, right click it and select Properties then click on the Stop button.
  3. Now browse to C:\Windows\System32\Spool\PRINTERS and delete the job inside this folder * Note: You may need to click a prompt to gain the appropriate authority to open the PRINTERS folder.
  4. Restart both the computer and the printer and you should find the document has been removed.

The process is much the same for Windows XP, Vista, 7, and 8. You just need to get to the run window (procedure will vary on different operating system) and the rest of th eprocedure is the same.
