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

Renaming network printers is a possible through the Windows registry. Not recommended for non-techies

Goto Start > Run...type regedit & press enter.

In the left window frame look for a heading named HKEY_CURRENT_USER.
Click the + then locate Printers > Connections and you should have the printer names and location WINS address or IP address in there.


Right click printer of choice and rename keeping the network pointer info intact. Restart PC for best results. Good luck! ;-)
