How to restart the Print Spooler

This is the solution that worked for me:

Problem: Windows cannot open "add printer. The local print spooler service is not running. Please restart the spooler or restart the machine.
  1. Click Start.
  2. Type services.msc in the start search box and press enter.
  3. Right click on print spooler and click on properties.
  4. Check if the startup type is automatic. If it is not then change it to automatic.
  5. Check if the service status is stopped. If yes then click on the start button.
  6. Click OK to cancel out of the Properties box.
  7. In the left panel back on the Services page click Restart
