How to Stop the HP Printer From Printing Test Pages

by Stephen Lilley

If you want to stop an HP printer from printing out automatic test pages, you'll need to use something called the "Print Queue." The print queue is a window that displays all of the jobs that your printer is currently working on. If you've set a number of test pages to print but no longer wish to proceed, going through this window will let you close them out and save your paper and ink from being wasted.

Click "Start."

Click "Control Panel."

Click "Devices and Printers."

Double-click on your HP printer icon to open the print queue.

Click on the listing for your test page. Click "Cancel" to stop your printer from completing that particular job. Repeat this step until all of the test pages have been canceled.
