    Try plugging the printer in first, and then starting Cura.  Open a model and slice it, then go to the monitor page.  Sometimes it takes a while to load.  You can also open a gcode file and then go to the Monitor page.  Cura looks for an active USB port when it starts up, but after that it doesn't look.


    If Cura is still not acknowledging the printer then open the Marketplace, choose Installed and scroll down to "USB Printing".  Make sure it is checked.  You might have to restart Cura if it was not checked.  Then try the above again.


    There are currently definite downsides to printing over the USB.  Prints can stop at any point for no apparent reason and you will need to click on the button to resume the print.  Printing via the SD card is much more reliable.  Remote printing using Octoprint/Raspberry PI is also much preffered.
