Shrinking is not completing in SQL Server

Shrinking window gets hanged.

EDIT: This appears to refer to the GUI in SSMS.

Have marked this down as this is such an ambiguous question. What exactly do you mean by window? WHICH window?

Shrinking can take a very long time to complete. Everything from a few minutes to a day and more.

Shrinking can be a very time consuming process. I script out the shrink command and run in it as a T-SQL script rather than using the GUI. It can be stopped in the middle of shrinking without causing a problem.
