Windows 7: Print Q problems

03 Apr 2015   #1

Print Q problems

I have the indistinct pleasure of being the administrator of a public computer with several users all PW protected. This computer has a printer for the use of the users. Frequently, the print Q gets stuck and I am called to clear it. Only the administrator can clear the print Q. I would like to allow the users to clear the print Q when they can't print. How can this be done WITHOUT divulging my PW to them?
