Windows 7: all the printers on my 3 PCs (WIN764-bit) stopped working the same day

I have an HP M277 that connects both by network/USB and wifi. I also have an HP 1015 laserjet networked, then there are the adobe printers and numerous other printers installed by Quicken, H&R Block taxcut, etc. None shows up, at reboot, until I go thru the steps outlined below.
Ive loaded the full printer package on each machine, but still all the disconnects.

Im ready to call it quits with win 7 and clean install win 10 on the three PCs. Could Microsoft have slipped a . . . . No, I wont get into conspiracy theories now.

PS. No yellow missing printers, and all drivers are there when the printers show up in the list.

I didn't ask how the printers can be connected. I asked HOW they are connected.

To MHz07: Both HP printers are connected directly to PC#1 via USB. PCs #2 and #3 connect to the two HP printers over a HOME LAN. Occasionally, e.g., when PC #1 is throwing a tantrum, I connect the other two PCs to either printer via USB cable. That has always worked in the past; with today’s ‘missing printers’ problem, I get the same zero response via USB or LAN connections.
Also, since two of the three PCs are laptops, I have a wireless/wifi connection with the HP Laserjet M277 printer. That too has worked until the disappearance of printers from my devices and printers panel.
As I mentioned above, I’m getting ready to do a clean install of win 10 on all 3 machines, something I don’t look forward to doing, since it’s so time-consuming.

Have you tried to reinstall the printer software as @Ranger suggested on post #10?
