How do I remove old printers from the printer list?

There are lots of old printers on my list of available printers, which are not in the Windows printers list, as they were deleted years ago.  How I do remove them from the Quickbooks list of printers so I can only choose from the currently installed printers?

I am using Quickbooks 2002 under Windows 10.

It shouldn't work at all. 2002 is 16 years behind. I do not know how or where QB keeps the printer list. It certainly is not in preferences. I would suggest a clean reinstall of QB EXCEPT you will never get it re-registered

QB 2002 reached end of life in 2005. Unfortunately, it also is from Before the flat data tables was changed to a true relational database, which was in 2006.

I'm surprised you got the program to run at all. W10 gets updates every 1st and 3rd Tuesday. Ever time you use that program and that data file might be the Last time you can get into it, and might be the date it becomes too corrupt to even update.

You cannot reinstall the program; it won't register with Intuit and it won't load into the Operating System correctly.

When you buy QB 2018, I recommend you ask Intuit to update that file for you.
