Each Lexmark printer requires a specific device driver that bridges the connection between the device and your Mac system. The printer is also bundled with additional software and tools that monitor the device's ink levels and printer settings. Like other Mac programs and applications, you can uninstall your Lexmark printer's software including the device driver if you no longer want to use the printer or you want to install a new non-Lexmark printer. Once the uninstallation process is complete, you can disconnect the printer from its Universal Serial Bus port.
