The Print Spooler in Windows is a service which manages multiple print jobs. It allows your printer to be shared across a network. If the Print Spooler is disabled ("stopped"), you might find yourself with missing print jobs, or a number of other problems. Follow the steps below to enable your Print Spooler.
If you're not comfortable changing your print settings, or you encounter error messages, contact a local technician for further assistance.
