Printer names on a Windows must be unique. To ensure that on multi-user operating systems, ezeep is automatically adding the users' session ID to the printer name. In some situations, however, it is preferable not to have a printer name that may change each time a particalur user logs in. 


Follow these steps to change the naming scheme of ezeep created printers.

1. As an administrator, open the registry of the system on which the ezeep Print App is installed.

2. Navigate to HKLM\SOFTWARE\ThinPrint\TPAutoConnect and look for the value TPACScheme

3. Change the data in that value according to your needs. You can use these variables.

  • %N = printer name
  • %S = session ID
  • %U = user name

Examples:

    %N (s%S) would create a printer that looks like "HP Laserjet (s5)"

    %N (%U) would create a printer that looks like "HP Laserjet (BJohns)"

    %N would create a printer that looks like "HP Laserjet"


Keep in mind when changing the naming scheme that you must ensure that each printer name remains unique. Otherwise users will not have access to some of their printers.
