How To Change Port on an Installed Printer?

I want to simply change the port on an installed printer. Currently it's set to a local usb port - I want to change it to \\Desk1\hp4050pcl.

It's funny because I have both the pcl and ps versions installed locally, but when I try to add a new printer over the network I get an error message saying the software could not be found. So I thought it would be just as easy to change the port.

Otherwise I guess I will have to locate the install drivers again and navigate to them manually when connecting to the network printer.
