Windows 7: Multiple printer icons under "Devices" in Win 7

Multiple printer icons under "Devices" in Win 7

In the Start > Devices and Printers window I have two printer icons. These represent two sets of preferences for a single physical printer. I don't recall how I achieved this dual image; in the past I have had one icon whose popup menu gave access to the clones' properties. I prefer to have a separate image for each clone. How do I create these?

Orpheus so I have this right you have cloned a drive ? and the cloned drive has two images for the same printer? Or have you cloned a drive and are not using the old one and the new drive has this double image.

Some system info would have been god too mate nt just an OS.
