Examples

Example 1: Remove a selected print job

PS C:\> Remove-PrintJob -PrinterName "PrinterName" -ID 1

This command removes the print job with an ID of 1 on the printer named PrinterName.

Example 2: Remove a print job using printer object and the print job ID

PS C:\> $printer = Get-Printer -PrinterName "PrinterName"
PS C:\> Remove-PrintJob -PrinterObject $printer -ID "1"

This set of commands retrieves the printer object into a variable ($printer) using Get-Printer, and then passes the contents of the variable to Remove-PrintJob to remove the print job with an ID of 1 on the printer contained in the printer object.

Example 3: Remove a print job using a print job object

PS C:\> $printJob = Get-PrintJob - PrinterName "PrinterName" -ID 1
PS C:\> Remove-PrintJob -InputObject $printJob

This set of commands retrieves the print job with an ID of 1 into a variable ($printJob) using Get-PrintJob, and then passes the contents of the variable to Remove-PrintJob to remove the print job on a printer by using a print job object.
