Rename printer in Windows 8

A search in Windows 8 settings yields a "Rename Device" result, but clicking on it only gives you a list of devices but no obvious way to change the name of a device. I want to rename a printer but can't do it. Any help? :(

  1. go to

    Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Devices and Printers

    select the printer and right click printer properties--not just properties
