    I have recently converted my Epson 777 printer to a USB port. I am still using my HP Laser Jet 4L on a parallel port. However, the parallel port is still named Epson Printer Port. My question is, "How can I change this name".

    That is the printers share name, not the name of the port. Go into the printers folder in Control Panel and right click the printer and select properties. Go to the sharing tab and change the name from there. Did you change the drivers and port assignments when you switched the printers around?
