Do you have the driver loaded?

Can you see the COM port?

What happens when you connect? (no Grbl Ready message)

If you click to load the firmware do you get an error?

It's built in to t2

Here is a quick getting started with t2 video on how to install firmware and get things running

Is it just a jpg?  Just set it to burn from the lower left start point.

The default is lower left 0,0.

So just set a workpiece home (resets the 0,0 of your machine) and that is going to be the lower left of image.
