We have already shown how to get rid of those annoying stuck print jobs from print spooler queues, if you are facing the problem where print jobs are not being deleted from the queue box even after getting printed here is the cause and solution to fix it.

- Goto "Devices and Printers" configuration section of your OS and right-click your printer selecting "Printer Properties" option.
- Switch to "Advanced" tab, and uncheck "Keep printed documents" option.
- Windows wont save/display the successfully printed jobs in queue from now on.
