HP printer setup (Apple AirPrint for Mac)

AirPrint is a built-in printing solution for Mac computers. You can print from most apps that have a print feature.

Note:

To access additional printer features such as scanning and HP printer tools, download and install HP Smart - Mac App Store (in English).

Add the printer in macOS with AirPrint

To set up an HP printer with AirPrint, add the printer to the print queue in System Preferences.

  1. Make sure the printer is connected to the Mac or to the same Wi-Fi network that the Mac is connected to.

    • USB connection: Connect the cable to the USB port on the rear of the printer and to an available port on the Mac.

    • Wi-Fi connection for printers with control panel menus: On the printer, select the Setup, Network, or Wireless menu, select Wireless Setup Wizard, and then follow the instructions to connect the printer.

    • Wi-Fi connection for printers without a control panel menu: Press and hold the Wi-Fi button for three seconds until the Wi-Fi light blinks. Press the WPS button on your router, and then wait while the printer connects to the network.

      If your router does not have a WPS button, download the HP Smart app on your Mac or mobile device, and then follow the instructions in the app to set up your printer on the Wi-Fi network.

    • 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 printer port, the green light should be steady and the orange activity light should blink.

  2. Open the Apple menu , click System Preferences, and then click Print & Scan or Printers & Scanners.

  3. Look for your printer in the Printers list.

    • If your printer is listed, remove the printer before you add it with AirPrint. Click the printer name, click the Minus sign , click Delete printer, and then click the Plus sign to open the Add window.

    • If your printer is not listed, click the Plus sign .

  4. In the Add window, select your printer.

  5. From the Use menu, select AirPrint or Secure AirPrint.

    If an AirPrint option is not listed in the menu, select Generic Postscript Printer (preferred) or Generic PCL Printer.
