  1. Cannot rename Printer port in Printer properties.


    My the IP port number for my default network printer was changed. I was able to enter "printer properties" and change to the new IP, and I can print. However, the "Port Name" in printer properties has remained the old IP number. Unlike in "Printer Name or IP Address" box, I cannot enter new text to rename the port. I'm the administrator on this machine and have all permissions. I've had this same problem back in my Win7 days and never got it solved.

    Windows 10 and parallel port (LPT) printer doesn't print

    **** Again,

    Just to update you all, I Shut down and rebooted a couple of times

    and my ports are still working,

    I opened the Device Manager (From Control Panel) and I was not

    able to find the LPT Ports listed. but I noticed they have Print queues listed

    I guess that the LPT Ports has been renamed, I was able to see my printers

    listed there and you will be able to Right Click on your printer and Select "Properties"

    and you will see the details of your printer.

    The printers are listed regardless of the PORT

    The printer port seems to be a Print Que "Local Print Queue" also called "Root Print Que"

    Regards

    Printer advice

    hp printers have the most expensive ink of all printers, the most economical is cannon and epson so i suggest if you looking to keep costs down look at those brands.

    that being said it may not have the best print quality if it uses less costly ink.

    if keeping cost down is the most important then shop in reverse, find a brand that has cheap replacement ink cartridges then see what printers they are used on. then from that list look to see if you like any of those printers and if they are affordable to you, if not then select another ink cartridge and look at the printers that those are used on. this method will give you the most affordable printer and the cheapest cost of replacement ink.

    personally i use the refillable ink cartridges like these: http://www.inkproducts.com/ink-store/catalog/Our-Epson-Refill-Kits-orderby0-p-1-c-4.html
