I was setting up some printers on a computer that were connected to the network.

Add a Printer > Local Printer (uncheck the box immediately below) > Create a Port: Standard TCP/IP Port

That's just how we do it. When I set up the ports, however, I did it wrong. Instead of, I created a port on which leaves me with more ports than printers. Can't find the setting that lets me go in there and delete the ports.

I *can* go into a printer's properties, select the port with a checkbox, and delete the port. But that also deletes (and makes me reinstall) the printer. What's the trick to getting just these ports deleted from my machine?
