What is the queue concept in computer system?

It's very similar to real-world queues. Queues can be used for various purposes. For example if there are multiple tasks that are waiting to be executed, then they will wait in a queue for their turn to come. Another use is when some resource (say your printer) is needed by various tasks for their successful and complete execution. These tasks will then wait in the queue for their turn as each task in front of them uses and releases the printer and then exits the queue. Basically a queue is a First In First Out (FIFO) structure. This means, that like real-world queues, the first task to enter the queue will be the first to execute or obtain its required resources. Any other tasks that come after it are added to the rear end of the queue and from there they move to the front of the queue one-by-one as their turn comes up. Hope that helps.

Think of a queue like a stack of cups in a cup holder. -Programs add requests (like putting cups in at the top) -The printer pulls out and prints one request at a time (like taking the bottom cup and filling it for the user). -The number of requests in the queue goes up when requests are added faster than the printer can print (like adding cups faster than they can be pulled out and filled).

What should you do if the printer is not working and the print job is stuck in a queue?

If you cannot get the printer restarted, you must cancel the job by right-clicking on it and selecting Cancel, to clear the queue. You may be able to get the printer working again by turning it off, unplugging it from the wall, and then plugging it in and turning it back on; but the print job, if it is partially processed, will be unreadable. You can, instead of canceling the print job, pause it; restart the printer as described above; and then restart the print job with right-click and Restart job. That will sometimes recover the print job.
