Chapter 13. Printing and Faxing > Renaming or Deleting a Printer

Renaming or Deleting a Printer

If you have trouble identifying a printer, or if you just want a change, you can rename it. You rename it the same way you rename a file or folder. When you rename a printer, the new name appears in the Print dialog box for all your programs. If you no longer use a printer, you can delete it. When you delete the default printer, Windows displays a warning message and changes the default printer to another available printer.

Rename a Printer

Click the Start button, and then click Printers And Other Hardware (Home) or Printers And Faxes (Pro).

Right-click the printer icon you want to rename, and then click Rename.

Type a new name for the printer, and then press Enter.

Click the Close button.
