Hello all,

When I got my 11-inch 128GB MBA, the first thing I did was wipe the drive and reinstall OS X to customize what's installed in it. I did not install any of the printer drivers. I had to download and install the HP Printer Drivers from Apple to use the HP printers at home and in the office. Problem is there was no way to just install the drivers I needed. It installed ALL the HP drivers from the package. So, after I setup all my HP printers, how do I remove the drivers I don't need? Thanks!

It's best to leave them be, printer drivers don't take up much space at all.

I would like to agree with you, except when I look at the /Library/Printers folder, the total size is 927 MB. That's a lot of space for just 2 printers that I use. And on this MBA, I consider space to be a premium.
