My wife and I just recently purchased the same printer--the HP Envy Photo 7858. We both print wirelessly on our home network from our respective desktops and iPads.
Here's my question: Is there a way to rename each of our printers on the network (rather than see the same models, as we are seeing now--especially when we use our iPads) , so that I print to mine and she prints to hers?
Right-Click on Printer > Select Printer Properties (not plain properties)
Remove the existing name > type in the name you want
Click OK to set / save the changes
Leave Devices and Printers...
Come back and the name should be updated.
