❏ Printer Class: Configures the printer to the printer class.
❏ Vender Class (Default Setting): Configures the printer to the vender class.
If you change the USB class from [Vender Class] to [Printer Class], the printer becomes a Printer Class
device. The computer detects the printer as a new Printer Class device and creates a new port.
Using the newly created port, you can print but cannot use the EPSON Status API. The existing port still allows
you to both print and use the EPSON Status API, so you can delete the newly created queue and use the
existing queue instead.
