Through the "Start" menu, call the "Control Panel". If the panel is in Classic view, click on the icon "Printers and Faxes" left mouse button. If the panel is displayed by category, click the icon in the "Printers and Other Hardware" category - a new window opens. Depending on the configuration folder "Printers and Faxes" is available immediately in the "Start" menu.

In the "Printers and Faxes" folder, move the cursor on the icon of the installed printer. In the left pane (task pane) displays a list of available actions. Select "Delete this printer", by clicking the left mouse button. Confirm their desire to remove the equipment by pressing in the query box on the "Yes" button. Wait until the printer is removed.

Step 4:

The files required for operation of the printer, are most commonly found in the directory C: (or another disk with the system) / Program Files / [name of your printer]. If this folder does not exist or is empty, then the printer is not installed (removed). Also, when you install the printer in the Windows / System32 folder, create a file with configuration parameters - its absence also says that the printer has been deleted.

Physical disconnection of the printer from the computer or from the network also leads to the fact that the documents are not printed. The files required for operation of the printer, do not take up too much space on your computer, so do not particularly affect the system performance. If you're afraid to delete something useful, physically turn off the printer.
