Make a services.msc Shortcut?

I have a wireless printer and for whatever reason, when I print it sends it to the printer queue but the printer itself just continues to zzZZzzz. Anyways, I have found that when I do RUN > services > Printer Spooler > Restart , the printer will then see and print whatever is in the printing queue.

"Open up notepad and paste the following

@echo off

echo RESTARTING THE PRINT SPOOLER SERVICES

net stop ""print spooler""

net start ""print spooler""

echo FINISHED RESTARTING PRINT SPOOLER

(Feel free to delete the first two and the last line!)

Save this anywhere as a .cmd or .bat file* (basically, call it restart printer.cmd)

If you have UAC on, you will need to right click and do ""Run as administrator"", if you do not have UAC on, you can just run it.

It should restart the print spooler service.

If it does not work, make sure the extension of the file is just .bat or .cmd and not .bat.txt or .cmd.txt

(it's up to you, I would personally use .cmd, but it makes no difference)"

"In your batch file run the following commands

net stop ""Print Spooler""
net start ""Print Spooler"""
