How do you reconnect to comport after printer power down.

Posted · How do you reconnect to comport after printer power down.


I have a puzzling problem. After printing I power off the Ender 5 to cut the fan noise.  Next day i power on the printer and Cura does not see USB Printing as an option. I can close and open Cura and power off/on the printer in multiple combinations and USB printing is not available.  Then randomly suddenly USB printing returns.  In the marketing place USB printing is always on, nothing changes except the printer power off.  I can see that this makes the comport go away. But when I power the printer on Com5 returns as it was when it was printing.

I have Cura 4.12.0
