I want to create a windows print queue where all jobs added to that queue simply vanish. They don't print, they don't accumulate... they just quietly go away. Can this be done?

Have it connected to NUL:.

I can attach a printer to all sorts of ports. NUL is not an option, though. – Joey Oct 28 '10 at 22:08
Admittedly I haven't handled printers on Windows in a while, but there has to be some way you can add it as a port. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Oct 28 '10 at 22:09
@Joey: You just have to add NUL: as a port. – Dennis Williamson Oct 29 '10 at 2:32

You can check this microsoft Technet article to create a fake printer whether you want to delete the jobs or you want to save them in your disk(for some reasons), and other port options as well

Can you summarise the important information from the Technet article? – bertieb Aug 31 '15 at 15:08
