Switch printer between Mac & Windows

    When I plug in my multifunction printer, Parallels asks me whether to assign the connection to Mac or Windows, and I normally select Mac.

    However, there are occasions when I want to use the scanner function in Windows, but since the Mac driver for the printer does not support the scanner I need to change the assignment of the printer.

    Sometimes just unplugging the USB cable and plugging it back in will allow me to re-select, but this doesn't always work. Is there a reliable way to get it to switch?

    Thanks, Marty

    From my experience I think you proceed the correct steps ;) to use the MFP with Mac and or with Parallels.
    I do the same. It is possible to connect the MFP directly for only use in Parallels but I would not recommend this.

    Best regards
