    Remove unspecified device


    How can I remove an unspecified device in printers and devices. The unspecified device was a result of a failed attempt to add a printer. It won't allow me to uninstall it, I did remove an error in the device manager but that didn't do anything.
    Right clicking has no effect.

    Go to device manager and and click View -> Show hidden devices. This will show the print queue. Expand it and delete anything relative to the failed device. Also expand Printers and make sure nothing is there too. When done, have a look for any device with yellow question mark. Remove that as well. Restart computer and have a look again that nothing is left.
