I have not moved to Win 8 yet so cannot tell you how to get to Devices and Printers, but it is in the CP and also listed in the old style Start Menu as a shortcut to Devices and Printers.
Have you " Add(ed)" the printer there yet?
This old plain jane printer is actually installed and working properly according to Device Mgr....it's listed correctly in the Printers list under "This PC/Control Panel" items. The only place it doesn't show up is when I actually want to print a document or webpage item selection....it's not in the printer window to choose as an option like my Lexmark is. I don't use one printer exclusively and like to bounce back and forth between the two in order to not have the ink dry out in either.....and I have lots of ink cartridges for the HP 832C that need to be used up before dumping this vintage machine. How do I get Windows to list it as another option when I need to print something?
