If you have a long print queue, but the current default printer is not working, use this trick to redirect the current and future print queue to another working printer.
1 Use key combination Win + R to open run window
2 Enter control printers, press enter
3 Devices and Printers window will show up
4 Right click on the dead printer -> Printer properties -> Ports -> Select another printer which works -> Click on OK button
From now on, the old print queue and future print queue will be processed form the selected new printer, if in a domain setup, it can save you from changing all default printers for all affected users by doing this from the server side.
