Chapter 3. Printing with Precision > Canceling a Print Job

Canceling a Print Job

Sometimes, you might decide at the last moment that you want to cancel a print job. The way you cancel a print job depends on whether background printing is turned on. By default, Word activates background printing, which means that you can continue working while you print a document. To change this setting, choose Tools, Options, click the Print tab, and then clear the Background Printing check box. To halt printing from within Word while your computer is sending a document to the printer, follow one of these two procedures:

  • If background printing is disabled, click Cancel or press Esc.

  • If background printing is enabled, double-click the animated printer icon on the status bar while the document is being sent to the printer. If you’re printing a short document, the animated printer icon might not be visible long enough for you to cancel the printing task.
