Renaming a Printer (Optional)

    - On MacOS, choose Apple menu > System Preferences, then click Printers & Scanners. Select the printer in the list at the left. Click Options & Supplies, then click General. Type the new name.

    - On Windows, choose Printers & Scanners > Select your printer> Manage>Printer Properties. On the General tab, rename your printer.

  2. Once the printer has been renamed, restart your computer so the changes can take effect.

  3. After restart, you will see the printer has been updated with the new name.
