Print Queue cancel in XP

  DocP 13:39 10 Jan 2005

If I cancel or purge a print queue in XP, it can often take a minute or longer to delete the item.

Any ideas about what might be the hold-up? I've looked at the task manager, but can't find anything hogging resources

Is your printer a "parrell" connection???

I have this connection and I find that it takes up to a minute as you said to cancel a printing job, and I am unaware that the USB printers do this as well as they are faster so the coomand should be sent to them faster

My printer is on the parallel port. I have two printers installed, which I manually switch between as needed. Problem is same with both printers, whether allocated as default or not.

Is both of them parrell or one USB??

Both parallel. I have things on the USB ports, but no printers
