My laptop won't print from MS Word. Computer says printer is "offline" but I can't figure out how to change that. The laptop will print shipping labels, however, from PayPal without problems. Help please?

Did it ever print from Word? If yes, just try a reboot. Sometimes trial and error is faster than analysis.

Reboot or try deleting the printer adding it back.

Long shot here. Is it the default printer and is it the printer that shows up in Word when you try to print? Look in Devices and Printers for which one is set to default.

I know that might sound silly, but I've gone through having the default printer be some oddball one that Windows set up and not getting the right one set in a program. Dang, it's hard to explain.

If you are in a hurry, print to PDF (CutePDF for example), then print from adobe reader or cutepdf.
