XP Hardware Removal

  spuds 15:43 10 Aug 2003

I wish to remove an installed printer from my hardware system in XP Pro. Do what I may, I cannot remove this item. In the old days of the 9x, it was a simple task of add/remove hardware. Where is my remove hardware key.

Go to Settings-Control Panel-System-Hardware-Device Manager. Highlight the hardware to remove and click uninstall. Shut down and remove lead and presto it's Gone. Dont forget to remove the drivers in add/remove programs.

Thanks mark500 for the info. I will try that. Just added further Helproom query, re printers and XP Pro that I have problems with.
