The Phantom Printer

This post will serve to help resolve the ever so famous “Phantom Printer.” For those who are unfamiliar with the “Phantom Printer,” this is referred to when your printer is installed on your device and can be chosen from the drop down list of printer properties, but does not appear in the Devices & Printers location. It has no effect on the printing itself, and does not cause any issues besides the obvious visual of “Where is this printer device if not in the Devices & Printers location?”
