Unable to connect ender 3 error com 1 does not exist

Is there printer drivers needed
Or can you help me
On windows you need a printer driver so port appears. If that is the case can be seen in hardware manager. If a device appears as unknown device it is missing otherwise it appears under com ports and you see which com port it got - must not necessarily be COM1.

Just an FYI - for the Ender 3.x and specifically the Pro and 2.0 series the CH341 chipset is used, all this means is that you need the CH340/CH341 drivers for your computer. You can find them at any safe certified download location, my unofficial suggestion:
Download, install the drivers and then make sure the printer is detected correctly in Device Manager, you will be good to go after that.
