Is there any way to rename a NETWORK printer in XP? (Home and Business Networking Support)

by Vesa, Tuesday, September 10, 2013, 08:35 (2050 days ago)

In Printers and Faxes, I can right-click on a local
printer, and be offered "rename" as an option.

However, if I right-click on a network printer, there
is no "rename" option.

I would really like to be able to rename, or nick name,
the network printers. I just can't remember if the
printer with a network name like "axd86d9zz1" is the
color printer, or the large 11x17 b&w printer. When I
try to print in an application, it would be a whole lot
easier if I had a selection called "color printer"
rather than "axd86d9zz" in the pull-down list.

Does anyone know a way to do this?
