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 credentials to run Remove-PrintJob.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Remove a selected print job

PS C:\> Remove-PrintJob -PrinterName "PrinterName" -ID 1

This command removes the print job that has an ID of 1 on the printer named PrinterName.

Example 2: Remove a print job using printer object and the print job ID

PS C:\> $Printer = Get-Printer -PrinterName "PrinterName"
PS C:\> Remove-PrintJob -PrinterObject $Printer -ID "1"

The first command gets the printer named PrinterName by using the Get-Printer cmdlet. The command stores the result in the $Printer variable.

The second command removes the print job that has an ID of 1 from the printer in $Printer.

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

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

The first command gets a print job that has an ID of 1 on the printer named PrinterName by using the Get-PrintJob cmdlet. The command stores the job in the $PrintJob variable.

The second job removes the print job in $PrintJob.
