I want to actually uninstall the driver and not just remove the printer from the installed printers.
The print management console is not available in Windows 7 home premium.
Does HP have a method for uninstalling the driver?
Solved! Go to Solution.

I haven't tried Windows 7 yet so this may not help, but have you tried checking (when viewing the installed printers from start button, Printers) File -> Run as Administrator -> Server Properties and then choose the driver tab to find & delete the printer driver in question? This is from memory as I am not in front of my Vista box at the moment.

Unfortunately the Server Properties option is no longer available in Windows 7. At least I can't find it anywhere. I think it is handled now by the print management snap-in, but home premium doesn't include that snap-in.

I was wrong. Print server properties are still available. When you highlight a printer it adds an additional button on top to get to print server properties. Drivers can be removed from there.

That's good that you found it and that option is still available in Windows 7 Home Premium. I'll keep that in mind when I upgrade over the Christmas break!
