access denied when trying to add a printer tcp/ip port

hi experts,

 I changed my printers ip address and I'm on the server and trying to change the ip address and while I try to add a standard tcp/ip port I get access denied, I'm logged on as administrator. see picture

Delete the WSD port first, and then you should be able to add the TCP/IP port.

You may need to clear the print spooler first and make sure no one is printing to the printer.

Open an Admin Command prompt:

Type net stop spooler then press “Enter“.
Type del %systemroot%\System32\spool\printers\* /Q then press “Enter“.
Type net start spooler then press “Enter“.
The print queue on your Windows should now be cleared.
