Want to install printer and can't, don't have software
I tried to restore my computer to an earlier date and could not, so I took it all the way back to the begining,I have gotten most of everything back that I lost only thing left is my printer, I did have the software for it, but with all the software that I have, guess which one is lost my printer software.
