Detailed Description

The Remove-PrintJob cmdlet removes a print job on the specified printer.

You can specify the print job to remove by specifying the PrinterName and job ID parameters, by specifying the printer object and job ID parameter, or by specifying a print job object as an input.

You cannot use wildcard characters with Remove-PrintJob. You can use Remove-PrintJob in a Windows PowerShell remoting session.

You do not need administrator privileges to use Remove-PrintJob.

Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.

PS C:\> Remove-PrintJob -PrinterObject $printer -ID "1"

Example 3: Remove a print job using a print job object

This set of commands retrieves the print job with an ID of 1 into a variable ($printJob) using Get-PrintJob, and then passes the contents of the variable to Remove-PrintJob to remove the print job on a printer by using a print job object.


PS C:\> $printJob = Get-PrintJob - PrinterName "PrinterName" -ID 1
PS C:\> Remove-PrintJob -InputObject $printJob
