I was in the process of printing an item from a web site, when I noticed that it was going to be 30 pages. I did not want to use that much paper or ink, so I just powered off my printer. I now have one print job stuck in queue and I am unable to delete it. I can highlight the document in queue and click on "delete", then verify that I truly do wish to delete the item, but nothing happens. How can I clear this out? Thanks for any assistance.

Start at the bottom of the queue at work to the top.

Have you still got the printer turned off? IIRC the spooler won't do anything to active jobs in the queue until it sees the printer active.

You could try pausing the printer queue, then powering up the printer & deleting the job before un-pausing.

Re-start the print spooler in services, common issue.

Thank you for the responses. A shut-down and reboot seems to have resolved the problem. :)
