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

Hello,

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.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\PRINTERS\CONNECTIONS\

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