Delete a printer on a Mac

If you no longer use a printer, you can delete it from your list of available printers.  To do so:

  1. Choose Apple menu > System Preferences, then click Printers & Scanners.

  2. Select the printer in the list, then click Delete (-).


Note: If you delete the printer that’s set as your default printer, OS X selects another printer as your default. To use a different printer as your default, choose it from the pop-up menu in Printers & Scanners preferences.
