Printer problem (Windows 10 and Lexmark printer)

My Windows 10 computer and Lexmark 9500 series printer will not communicate with each other. I am told that the 'USB Composite Device is and older one and will not work with USB 3.0' I am rather 'computer ignorant'. Is there a USB 3 cable that I need to purchase or will my printer not work with Windows 10?

Printers are usually USB 2, some USB2 devices will not work from a USB3 port. If it's connected to a USB 3 port move it to a USB 2 port. Did you check for up to date drivers from the Lexmark web site? Have you tried uninstalling the drivers reboot and reinstll them folling the instructions in the manual. From the Instruction manual your printer may be capable of printing over WiFi have you look at this option.
