Once we have the file on our screen then we will right click on QBPrint.QBP file and scroll down in options to click on Rename. Now rename the file with adding a word or a symbol which will help you in differentiating this file.
In order to locate the QBPrint.QBP file in Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7 and Vista: Go to the location – C:\ProgramData\Intuit\QuickBooks 20xx Here 20xx is showing your version of QuickBooks.
In order to locate the QBPrint.QBP file in Server 2008 and Server 2012: Go to the location – C:\Program Data\Intuit\QuickBooks YEAR and C:\Users\**remote user**\AppData\Roaming\Intuit\ YEAR VERSION\TSPrinterSettings.
