    To change the printer's mode from "Offline" to "Online", then navigate to Start>> Control Panel>> Choose Printers>> Now right click on your Printer. You will find a check mark on the checkbox showing "Use Printer Offline". If you want to change its mode to "Online" then simply uncheck this checkbox. Now you would be able to use your printer without any issue.
