How to change an icon in printers and peripherals?


How does the management of devices and printers icons, the icon is awarded based on the pilot? Manage the register? do you think it is possible to change such an icon?

Because I installed 2 printers of the same type (MPT) but 2 different versions and I get two different icons (icon anchor and inkjet printer multifunction).
