    Renamed a pinter, now can't access it


    I installed a printer on my PC. It created two printers in Devices and Printers - one for normal printing and one for sending faxes. I tried renaming the one for sending faxes, and I succeeded, but now the printer is grayed out and I can't access it any more. If I double click on the printer, I get error 0x00000709.


    I renamed the printer by right-clicking on the printer in Control Panel -> Devices and Printers, selecting Printer Properties, renaming the printer in the window and clicking OK.


    I still have drivers for the printer listed in Device Manager, but one of them is grayed out.


    How do I get access to my printer back?

    :)

  2. Can't rename folder.

    Hi Howard,

    It is possible that the difficulty renaming your folder is due to access/account limitation or a recent change was made on your computer. For better assistance, please answer the following questions:

    • Are you getting an error message when trying to rename the folder?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you tried?
    • Can you send us a screenshot of the "Public" folders?

    We will be waiting for your response.

    Can't rename folder.

    Thank you for following the steps. What we can try is using the Command Prompt to rename the folder. Kindly follow the steps below:

    • Press Windows key and type "command prompt".
    • Right-click Command Prompt and select Run as administrator.
    • Enter this command: cd /X: (X represents the drive where the folder is).
    • Copy and paste this command after entering the first one: icacls * /T /Q /C /RESET.

    Feel free to contact us if you need assistance with Windows
