What kind of printer connection??What is causing Paper Jams?? How many times does this happen? How old is printer? May just need cleaning?

Did you try - reseting printer - by turning [OFF] & [ON] after Jam? Probably be the same as restarting windows - unless printer loses the "software connection"- Check Printers folder to see if printer is still set as default.

Or go to Printer Folder & Open Printer & Cancel document -

Or use Device Manager to see if Printer has YELLOW WARNING sign.

Do you have a cancel button on printer? What does your manual say? If you do not have a manual - browse Installation CD for Manual pdf file

Some printers put themself [OFF LINE] when having internal problem . a simple button pressing after removing JAM.

The root cause: What is causing paper jams - would be the real fix -
