Swap printers?

I have a back up of all my printers.... the Star TSP-143U was moved over the weekend... now it locks up from time to time.  Can I pull out my back up Star TSP-143U and swap it out without windows config?  I just want to see if it is the printer?

If it uses the same print driver, it should work fine. Now, it might actually reinstall a second instance of it. But it will name it as a "BLAH - Copy 1". It can safely be deleted once you are done testing....

It seems the TSP-143U only uses a USB inetrface. In that case, swapping the printer means that Windows will recognise it as a different machine. That means you will then have to install a driver for the replacement printer, too.
