Missing usb ports

When I install a local printer usb is not an option for ports
on a 64bit pro O.S.
Does anyone know how I can add the usb ports?
They are enabled in device manager with no issues
I can use the usb ports with no issues at all
just missing when I go to add a local printer

Along with curtis's suggestion, go to manufactures website and download driver for printer using Win 7 64 bit OS
Fill out your system specs and then we can really help you now and in the future.
