I recently had some issues with my printer not working on my home network and during the troubleshooting process I wanted to remove the printer port so I could reinstall the printer all together. The issues ended up being stupidity on my part for adding a temporary device on my network that had the same IP address of the printer so I was able to easily get that resolved once I figured it out by checking the MAC address associated to the IP in question using ARP. I did want to share how I was able to forcefully remove the printer port in Windows 7. These instructions will not only work for Windows 7 but will also work for other Windows versions including Windows Vista and Windows XP. Follow the instructions below to forcefully remove a printer port.
