Why is my computer taking too long to print?

When I try to print, this screen pops up and then the page does not respond but if you leave it alone it finally allows you to print after like 10 seconds. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Go to printer preferences and uncheck "preview before printing". The screenshot is for canon printers but there should be something equivalent for other makes
