This document is for HP multifunction inkjet and LaserJet printers released in 2010 and later with HP Scan software installed on a Windows computer.
The full feature Windows driver and software package for many HP printers includes HP Scan software. Change scan quality and color settings, attach scans to email messages, set a destination folder to save scans to, and more.
With HP Scan installed, you can start scan jobs from the printer control panel. If the software is not installed, the computer cannot process scanned items and the scan button or icon on the printer is disabled.
