My Arduino Uno is not showing up as a USB port!!! Please Help! Answered

I am currently trying to convert my old shitty keyboard into a MIDI controller and have everything hooked up to a breadboard and Arduino Uno but the Arduino will not show up as 'USB Serial Port" as the website says it will.
It is showing up in the device manager under "Ports" named "Arduino Uno (COM4)' and I am able to program it to run the blink program successfully, but it just is not showing up as a USB device in order to use it as a MIDI device.

The drivers seem to have all been installed, and the usb cable is working perfectly.
Also when it is plugged in and out of the computer, the computer will make the USB sound but no new USB drive will appear.

Please Help someone!!!! This keyboard is driving me nuts!!!

Yeah I have but I am trying to convert my keyboard. I am following this guide from EvanKale and am up to the MIDI-OX part but my device is not being recognised.
