Printer not on print manager list but can print to it from aps

My usb attached printer is no longer listed in control panel PM. I want to set it as default but can't. Tried several suggestions in this forum but nothing worked. Thanks.

Hello and welcome Stacey now just what have you tried?? It sounds like a driver issue to me but unless we have some definite specs on the equipment not much we can do.
See this System Info - See Your System Specs

One item in particular is what is the printer make and model.
