When I try to print on my Canon MG5560 I keep getting the following message....
Another computer is using the printer.
The following status is the usage status of that computer.

This is a driver issue.
Need to go and delete the controle panel and delete all physical printers not being used including the canon.
No reinstall the printer. you may need to go to Canons web site and downlload and install the drivers to make it all work properly. Worked first time without any problems.

If this answer is not already listed...
On Windows 8+, click Start with the right button and choose "Command Prompt (Admin)"
Type these 3 lines in, one at a time in the little black cmd window, and press Enter after each one (you can also right click in the little cmd window and paste all 3 with one click):
net stop spooler
del %systemroot%\System32\spool\printers\* /Q /F /S
net start spooler
I get this once in a while on mine - the print job is in the queue but doesn't show up in the Windows dialog.
These command line instructions stop the print spooler, delete any hidden pending jobs, and restart the spooler..
Works every time for me anyway
You can put them in a batch file to save a few steps, too
