  1. How to rename a device on the Devices and Printers page


    I have two identical BT headphone sets that show up on the Devices and Printers page as the same name. Is there a way to rename one of them? I could rename one in the Sound properties box, but it did not change in the Devices and Printers page or when I click on the Connect tile in the right side bar. These two locations still show both with the same name.

    :)

  2. change properties button for printer is missing in control panel

    I'm trying to rename my printers. I open the control panel, click on view devices and printers, right click the first printer and click on printer properties which opens the general tab for that printer. On the bottom there should be 3 buttons, change properties,
    preferences..., and print test page. The change properties button is missing so I can't rename the printer. How do I get this button back or else is there another way to rename the printers? If it makes a difference both printers I'm trying to rename are HP
    OfficeJet 4650 all-in-one printers.

    Thank you

    Windows 10 Unable to rename bluetooth device in device and printers

    I had the same issue -- as a shortcut to reading the whole thread, my issue was that it looks like the change is not sticking, until you power-cycle your Bluetooth device (disconnect, power down, power up, reconnect). This worked perfectly after renaming
    through Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Devices and Printers and right clicking the device and going to the last tab.

    (copy "Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Devices and Printers" and paste it in file explorer)
