Using Epson printer on Windows 7

I've recently bought a new PC running Windows 7. When I plug my Epson printer into a USB port it shows as an "USB printer" in devices and printers but I cannot do anything with it - right clicking the icon doesn't work so I can't set it to the default printer. 2 other devices appear in the folder, neither of which are connected, yet either can be set as the default by right clicking the device and selecting Properties. Why can't I define the printer? I've contacted Epson you say the relevant driver is incorporated in Windows 7. Can anyone help???

RE: Using Epson printer on Windows 7

You will need to update the driver for it through Windows Update.

Right click "Computer" and choose "manage", choose "devices" (or similar wording", right click on the "USB printer" and select "update driver".
