This document explains how to scan using the full feature driver and HP Printer Assistant in Windows 7.
This document provides instructions on how to download and install the full feature driver, and how to scan using the full feature driver and HP software.
Step 1: Check to see if HP software is installed
HP Scan software is part of the full feature software installation. Check to see if HP Printer Assistant is already installed on your computer.
  1. Turn on your computer.
  2. Search Windows for the name of your printer.
    • If your printer displays in the results, skip to the step to scan with HP software, and then choose the option you want to use to scan.
    • If your printer does not display in the results, continue to the next step to get the latest HP software.
Step 2: Download and install the HP software
Download and install the full feature HP software from the HP Customer Support website.
  1. Turn on the printer.
