You may also try these:
1. Open the Start menu and click on the "Printers and Faxes" icon. This will open a window with a list of the printers currently set up on your computer.
2. Double-click on the icon of the printer you want to change to online. A pop-up window detailing all current print jobs will open.
3. Go to "Printer" in the menu bar of the pop-up window and uncheck "Use Printer Offline." This action will change the printer from offline to online.

That's what I expected too... But there is no such selection on the drop-down list! How do I get it back?

I uninstalled my ASUS AISuite3 wich controlls the USB 3 Boost functions. This changed the way my printers communicated with the OS. Probably an IP change was the result.

But that's not terribly relevant because when you printer goes off line in Win 7 it is not obvious how to solve it and the interwebs are full of stupid solutions like trying to rewrite the IP addresses to using System Restore.

I uninstalled the AI suite because I thought my initial install was buggy. So after re-installation things had changed.

My solution to Printer Offline was to delete the printer from the Devices and Printers dialog box. Then reboot the computer and VIOLA the drivers self installed and my printers were happy again.

However I discovered that there is a way to do it without the reboot:
Navigate the the Devices and Printers dialog box and right click the printer in question and open the See What's Printing dialog box. In that dialog box - in the upper left hand side is a tab labeled Printers. Click that. In the drop down menu there'll be an option for Use Printer Offline. Uncheck the associated box.
