Turn off Automatic Search for Network Printers
I not really want to see all the network printers on my subnet, especially the ones that do not belong to my department. Here is how to disable this “feature”:
- Click Start, click Control Panel, click Appearance and Themes.
- Click Folder Options to open the Folder Options dialog box.
- Click the View tab.
- In the Advanced Settings list, click to clear the Automatically Search for Network Folders and Printers check box.
- Click OK.
