Restore printer icon to Windows 7 taskbar

Specs: Windows 7, ???

I have Windows7. It (the printer icon) disappeared when I was having trouble with my printer and I was asking questions at assorted sites to get my printer working. I probably accidentally deleted the icon from my bottom task bar. I would like it back.

PS Question mark (?) did not work in #1 above.
Thank you.

Just open the control panel and find your printer. Right click and select create shortcut. Look on the desktop for the shortcut and drag it onto the taskbar.

I believe the printer icon only appears in the tray when a print job is in progress.

When you send a print job to the printer does the icon then appear?

Verify you are actually sending the print job to that printer. Use the File> print option and verify where the print job is being sent.
