Hi @47794318,

You can rename it by using the following method.

Click Start button, type Devices and Printers and select same from the list.

Right-click a printer, and then click Printer properties.

Click the Sharing tab, and then type the new name in the text box.

Click Apply/OK.

the above method you supplied that the words "on 172.20.X.X" will be deleted ?
