Were you a bit too hasty with the print button? No problem! You can easily put the breaks on any unwanted print project in a few easy steps. If you are already familiar with how to abort a print project on a Windows-operated computer, you will find that the procedure is practically mirrored on a Mac. Quickly open the print queue and put a halt to wasting anymore ink or paper.
Things You'll Need
- Mac computer
Click on your printer, which should appear on the Dock. You will see a list of print jobs sortable by Name, User, and when they were sent to be print. On the far left, the status of each print job is listed.
Select the project that you would like to abort by clicking on it.
Click on the Delete button in the left corner of the window. You will see the project disappear from the queue.
Hold down the Control key and click on multiple print jobs if you would like to delete more than one job at once.
Tips & Warnings
- Alternatively, after highlighting the project you would like to delete, you can delete it by simultaneously pressing the Command and Delete keys on your keyboard. A partial page or even a few pages from the project may print if you weren’t able to stop the project soon enough.
