Remove a printer from your printer list when you don’t use it on Mac
If you no longer use a printer, you can remove it from your list of available printers.
On your Mac, choose Apple menu > System Settings, then click Printers & Scanners in the sidebar. (You may have to scroll down.)
Control-click the printer in the list on the right, choose Remove printer, then click Remove Printer.
You can also delete a printer by clicking the printer in the Printers list, then clicking Remove Printer.
If you remove the printer that’s set as your default printer, macOS selects another printer as your default. To set a different printer as your default, choose it from the Default Printer pop-up menu in Printers & Scanners settings.
Tip: You can quickly remove a printer using Print Center, which you can find in the Utilities folder. When Print Center is open, select the printer in the sidebar, then choose Printer > Remove Printer. See Manage printers and print jobs with Print Center.
