Ethernet Printer Installation

HP Recommended
Color Laser Jet Pro MFP M281cdw
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have had this printer sitting around for over a year because I  never got the wireless connection quite right. I had 3 printers connected to it, 2 Windows and 1 old Mac. The Mac seems to connect to it without a problem but the Windows PC not. So now I decided to take a second crack at it and do an ethernet network connection. I think I have the cables connected properly, then went to and think I downloaded and installed drivers correctly, found printer on network. However after installation has been carried out and go looking for the printer in the settings I don't find it. What am I doing wrong?
