Clearing the Print Queue

I was hung up trying to install some print drivers, which wouldn't work because there was an active print job. It turned out all I needed to do was clear the print queue, which you can do with these elevated shell commands:

net stop spooler
del %systemroot%\System32\spool\printers\* /Q /F /S​
net start spooler
