HP Printers - Printing with Apple AirPrint (macOS and OS X)

This document is for HP AirPrint-compatible printers and Mac computers with macOS and OS X 10.7 (Lion) and later.
Print and scan to a Mac without installing a driver by setting up the printer with Apple AirPrint. Most HP printers released in 2011 and later support AirPrint.
  note:
For steps to use AirPrint for Apple iPhones or iPads, go to HP Printers - Printing with Apple AirPrint (iOS)
Step 1: Connect the printer to the Mac or your network
To use AirPrint, connect the printer to the Mac or to the same network that the Mac is connected to.
  1. Turn on the printer, and then connect it to the network or the computer, depending on how you want to use your printer.
    • Wireless connection for printers with touchscreen or LCD menu control panels: On the printer, select the Setup, Network, or Wireless menu, select Wireless Setup Wizard, and then follow the on-screen instructions to connect the printer.
    • Wireless connection for printers with buttons only: Press and hold the Wireless button for three seconds until the wireless light blinks. Press the WPS button on your router, and then wait while the printer connects to the network.
    • USB connection: Connect the cable to the USB port on the rear of the printer and to an available port on the computer.
    • Wired (Ethernet) network connection: Connect the network cable to the printer Ethernet port and to an available port on the router or access point. At the port, the green light should be steady and the orange activity light should blink.
      note:
    For a guided printer connection setup, go to HP Customer Support - Software and Driver Downloads, enter your printer model if prompted, click Download next to HP Easy Start or the full feature driver under Driver-Product Installation Software, and then open the file to begin the printer setup.
  2. Open a document or photo, click File, and then click Print.
    • If your printer is listed in the Printers menu, click the printer name and try to print. If you can print, the setup is complete.
    • If your printer is not listed in the Printers menu, it might display under Nearby Printers. Continue to the next step if the printer does not display in either list.
