However, there is a Quit on a right click on the icon and it works. Another way to do it is to click on the icon as if to look at the queue and then do a quit from the menu.

I think Apple was forced to do this because HP seemed to be refusing to maintain print drivers for older printers and the HP website was no help.

There is a way to quit any app that doesn't require clicking at all. Hold the Cmd key down and press Tab to display all the active app icons. Continue holding down Cmd and press Tab to move the selected app to the one you wnat to quit (the Printer Queue app in this case). Keep holding down the Cmd key and press Q and that selected app will Quit.

Good Luck,
