 caution:
Do NOT connect the USB cable now. Wait until the on-screen instructions prompt you to connect it. HP recommends using a USB cable that is less than 3 m (10 ft) long.
There are several methods available to install the software and driver for your printer, including using the HP Printer Install Wizard, downloading the HP software, and installing the basic driver included in the Windows 8 operating system (in-OS driver).
 note:
If you are trying to resolve a particular issue or error message, reinstalling a driver might not resolve the issue. Unless you know that reinstalling is the correct solution, search for help documents that pertain to your specific issue or error message.
 note:
If you are not using the latest version of Windows 8, the information in this document might not match. You can get the latest version from the Microsoft Store.
