Delete print jobs stuck in queue

In an administrator command prompt paste the following commands or convert it into a script.
@echo off
echo Purging the print queue…
net stop Spooler
echo Deleting all print jobs… ping localhost -n 4 > nul
del /q %SystemRoot%\system32\spool\printers\*.*
net start Spooler
echo Done!
ping localhost -n 4 > nul



If that doesn’t work you can try these two things:

Run sfc /scannow from an admin command prompt
Set Bluetooth service to automatic and then start it
