    Is there a way to stop printing FAST?


    When a document I'm printing turns out to have w-a-a-y too many pages, I know I can stop it by clicking on the printer icon, then clicking on what's printing, then clicking stop...while 3-4 more rogue pages print.

    Is there a command or app that would let me at least pause printing with a single click?

    For some time now I've used Clean Print Spooler and/or Stalled Printer Repair, both pinned to the taskbar, to quickly stop a print job in action; I forgot where I got 'em from.

    I can't find clean print spooler--got a url for it?
    But I have downloaded Stalled Printer Repair and will see how it goes. I don't need it often, so it may be a while.

    Thanks!
