Welcome
Lets start here
Go to search
Type services
Make sure that the printer spooler is set to automatic

If that does not work, from search, go to devices and printers and make sure that the printer is showing.

First lets be sure that the printer works. Attach to another computer, if possible
If that works, go to the website of the printer manufacturer and download the most current driver.
