Pausing a printer queue suspends the processing of any documents for the queue.
You can only pause printer queues that you own.
In the Queue pane, select the printer queue you want to pause.
From the Printer menu, choose Pause.
The queue icon and status text are updated to indicate the queue is online, but that processing of the queue has been paused.
To resume processing of the printer queue, from the Printer menu, choose Resume.
The Resume menu item is only available when a printer queue is paused.
