How can I rename the name of a Scanner?
hello,

It is easy to rename a printer by just right-clicking and selecting "Rename".

But what about Scanners? I installed my new multifunction printer today and
I have been able to rename the printers as I want. But when I run Windows
Fax and Scan, the scanner names listed are NOT what I want to see. For
example, "Brother <model number> LAN" and "Brother <model number>" for the
network and local connections, respectively.

Is it possible for me to rename the scanner these entries to something that
I like; for example, "Brother Scanner Network" and "Brother Scanner Local"?

I'm running Vista Ultimate 64-bit.

Thanks!
