What does spooling mean?

trying to print a document status says spooling
you can restart your PC which should resolve the issue. You can also restart the print spooler process in the windows services. Right click on this pc or on computer and select manage. Go into Services and Applications > Services. locate Print Spooler process from the list and click restart.
Spooling is actually short for Simultaneous Peripheral Operations On-Line. The document that you are printing is stored in a buffer, which is a cache of memory/storage set aside for that purpose. The printer then pulls the document out of the buffer when it is ready to print it. With the document cached via printer spooling, your computer can move on to other tasks without waiting unnecessarily for the print job to be completed.
