To stop the current print job from the software program
A dialog box will appear briefly on the screen, giving you the option to cancel the print job.
If several requests have been sent to the printer through your software, they might be waiting in a print queue (for example, in Windows Print Manager). See the software documentation for specific instructions about canceling a print request from the computer.
If a print job is waiting in a print queue (computer memory) or print spooler (Windows 98, 2000, XP, or Me), delete the print job there.
For Windows 98 or Windows Me, click Start, click Settings, and then click Printers. For Windows 2000 and Windows XP, click Start and then click Printers. Double-click the HP Color LaserJet 3000, 3600, or 3800 printer icon to open the print spooler. Select the print job that you want to cancel, and then press Delete. If the print job is not cancelled, you might need to shut down and restart the computer.
