Is it possible in Windows XP SP2 to give your prinetr a friendly name?

I print to 10 printers, all the names look the same and usually only one is working or not backed up at any one time.

Looks like it may be a permissions issue:…. Note though that I only want to change it for me, not for everyone. – Chad Oct 31 '11 at 20:28

Printer's name are set on the printer itself or in the Windows XP shared printer's name. You can set what ever you like.

If it's in a business environment, this is different since this is managed by the print server admin.
