Failed to remove driver, print management

CatOnRug solve, automate, speed up Failed to remove driver, print management
Failed to remove driver. The specified printer driver is currently in use.

I solve this situation with regedit

Deleted all connections under:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Printers\Connections

Deleted all printer settings under:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Printers\Settings
With administrative permissions restart printer spooler.

If no success then with admin permissions under regedit delete all connections under
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Print\Providers\Client Side Rendering Print Provider\S-1-5-21-725345543-515967899-839522115-6576\Printers\Connections
Remove printer id key searched by printer driver name under
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Print\Providers\Client Side Rendering Print Provider\Servers\server-name\Printers

Restart printer spooler
