How To Cancel Printing From Ipad

Share This:

Do you own an iPad and are looking for a way to cancel printing jobs from it? If so, you’ve come to the right place. In this blog post, we’ll explain how to cancel printing jobs from your iPad using AirPrint.

AirPrint is Apple’s built-in wireless printing technology that allows you to print from your iPad without needing any extra hardware or software. In order to use AirPrint, both your printer and your iPad must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network. Once that’s taken care of, all you need to do is open an app that supports AirPrint (most apps do) and select “Print.” From there, you can select the printer you want to print with and then start printing documents or webpages.

But what if you want to cancel a print job after it has started? Fortunately, canceling a print job is just as easy as starting one. All you need to do is open the “Active Printers” dialog box on Windows (found by right-clicking the Printer icon in the taskbar), select the printer from which you want to cancel a print job, and then select “Document > Cancel.” Once that’s done, the job will be canceled and no paper will be wasted!

If you don’t have a Windows computer but still want to disable AirPrint on your iPad, there’s an easy way to do that too. You can simply type “http://[IP address of your printer]/ into your web browser, click “Network Configuration,” enter in the username and password for your printer, click “OK,” click “Configure Protocol,” uncheck the box next to “AirPrint,” click “Submit,” and then restart your printer. This will disable AirPrint on your iPad so that no further documents can be printed unil AirPrint is re-enabled.

We hope this blog post was helpful in explaining how you can easily cancel printing jobs from your iPad!

Changing AirPrint Settings on an iPad

To change your AirPrint settings on your iPad, start by opening the Settings app. Tap on ‘Printer & Scanner’ to access your AirPrint options. On this page you’ll be able to select a printer, set up a new printer, and adjust your default printing settings. You can also toggle on or off the ‘Show AirPrint Printers’ option to make sure that only compatible printers apper in your list of available printers.

If you want to customize further, tap on the printer name and you’ll be taken to a screen with more detailed settings. Here you can adjust paper size and type, color mode, number of copies, double-sided printing (if supported), and other options depending on the printer model. Once you have made all the desired changes, tap ‘Done’ in the top-right corner to save them. Your new settings will now be applied whenever you use AirPrint for printing from your iPad.

Clearing a Printer from an iPhone

To clear the printer from your iPhone, you can start by pressing the Home button twice (or swiping up from the bottom of the screen and pausing for iPhone X users). This will open up the Print Centre icon, whch you should tap to open up the Print Summary. On this screen, you will see all of your current print jobs listed. To cancel any of these jobs, simply tap on Cancel Printing to remove it from the list. Once all of your desired print jobs have been removed, you can exit out of the Print Centre and your printer will then be cleared.

Checking If AirPrint Is Running

AirPrint is a feature built into Apple devices that allows you to print directly from your Mac or iOS device without the need for drivers or additional software. To check if AirPrint is running, open the Printer dropdown menu on your Mac and see if the printer you’re checking for AirPrint is available. If it is, then AirPrint is working! If not, you may need to add the printer to your Mac before using AirPrint.


In conclusion, the iPad is a powerful and versatile device that can be used for a variety of tasks. With the ability to connect to the internet, access applications, play music and videos, take pictures, and more – it’s no wonder why iPads are so popular. Additionally, with AirPrint compatibility and easy setup for printers, iPads make printing from anywhere quick and convenient. Whether you’re using it for work or leisure, the iPad is an excellent choice for anyone looking to stay connected while on the go.
