Ever tried to print a document and perhaps waited by the printer, only to realize that the print command is stuck in the queue and will not go through?

Typically, and to make things worse, you might find that your print jobs in the clogged print queue are impervious to being deleted, instead displaying an endless ‘deleting’ message that does not go through. If so, what you need is free (and portable) ‘Print Queue Cleaner’ a program which will unclog and resolve print queue problems at a single click.

How to use: launch the program and click ‘Fix it’ when you have print queue problems. Then go back to your print queue and delete or otherwise manage your print jobs from there.

The verdict: a beautiful little program that can save you a lot of trouble in a pinch. Note that when I tested it I had to simulate a print problem by printing several documents when no printer was available.
