  1. Can this app handle multiple printers installed in one machine? For example, I have 3 printers installed and shared in a network. Only one of these printers I need to monitor and need to Cancel/Purge all printer queue every now and then. How can I do that using your app?

    Thanks, Rey

    1. This application will clear the entire printer queue of all local printers attached to a computer. There is only one printing service in Windows, irrespect of the number of printers attached. Thus, stopping that service stops printing of all printers.

  2. Thank you so much.  I am running Win7. My HP 5P laser printer died in the middle of 5 print ques. I hooked up a HP4L to the computer, it installed the 4L in wihth the 5P. I could not get the print ques deleted so I could delete the 5P printer that was no longer there.
    Your “fix” worked well. I got all of the “old” 5P drivers uninstalled no problem once the print que cleared. I could then rename the $l to my favorite default name.
     
    Thanks…

    1. There are various ways to reset ink level of HP Printers. This is something that is not recommended by HP for reasons. However, hitting: “reset ink level of hp printer” on Google will give you a very good set of result. Apply the one that is meant for your printer.

  4. When displaying your screen on a wide screen monitor, I cannot read what is your left side display box clearly. Can you reset your screen displays?

    1. @Filipe :: You will have to run as an administrator. Win7 does not run applications as the administrator by default.

      When starting the application, press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER and/or CTRL+SHIFT+ or – Run as administrator..
