Cancel the printing job On Windows


I have seen some of the users who how to print their document correctly and easily,however some of them seem to be did not know how to stop or cancel the print job easily and correctly when somethong wrong happen with their job.

Sometime if something incorrect or found some  errors and then have to stop and cancel the printing instantly.

So some of them did nothing ,but  wait and let 's the printing job to finish ,so they can correct the mistake and start the printing job again. This simple option was simple and easy in the case that only 2-3 pages were printed ,but if the number of pages were 10 -20 pages this would not the good option at all.
