In both home and business environments, it can be easy to accumulate a list of former printer drivers. The longer a PC has been around, the more printer drivers they probably have installed. Having these old printers show up is not detrimental, but it can turn into a nuisance. If you don’t plan on having a particular printer connected to your computer again and you’ve decided to remove it, this is how you do it:

2. Double-click the “Printers and Faxes” icon.
3. Right-click on the printer that you want to remove and select “Delete”
