Hello, My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will assist you in finding an answer to your question.

tbwhite2040 :

Right-click your printer icon and make sure the Use Printer Offline is not checked or Use Printer Online is checked. Then go to Properties and open it up. Click on the Ports tab and make sure you have a checkmark in the ports box next to USB virtual printer port if you are connecting your printer to your computer using a USB cable. Then click Apply. This will move your printer up beside the USB port.
