removing print drivers from Windows 10

Last Modified: 2016-08-15
I want to remove the drivers for a print in Windows 10. On the local workstation, print server properties. drivers, if i click on remove it tells me that "unable to remove the specific [romter driver is currently in use". If i stop the print spooler so it unloads the print driver, I get the message "  the local print spooler service is not running. Please restart the spooler or restart the machine". How do I go about remove the print driver on the workstation?
