Tip & How-To about Office Equipment & Supplies
Well hello again!
Good to see you!
Together we are going to download and install the very latest drivers available for the Hewlett Packard Printer. This guide applies to all models of Hewlett Packard printers, from ink-jets to multi-function beasts.
The very first thing to do is to open up the Hewlett Packard Support and Drivers webpage, you can do this now by clicking here!
Now that it is open you will see a page that looks like this:
Now you will want to select the option to Download drivers and software (and firmware). A small dot appears in the circle on the left of the option!
The next thing to do is to type the model number/name into the space provided labled For Product!.
An example is shown in the picture below:
Red elipsis indicates the option to fill in and select, green elipsis shows the button that is clicked to continue to the next page.
The following page may show printers in the series, you need to select the one that you need drivers for!
Now on the third page you will need to select the language that the software will be installed in. You also have to select the operating system that you are wanting to install the printer on, in other words the Version of Windows, Linux etc...
Once this is complete the latest driver available for your printer will be displayed. Choose the drivers with the release date as close to current date as possible.
Save the file download to your computer, desktop and install the driver by double clicking the file once it has been completly downloaded.
Save file to either desktop or My Documents doesn't matter where so long as you can find it again.
Yes it is as easy as that, now you will be running your Hewlett Packard with the latest drivers available. Meaning you will be less likely to run into bugs and for those without the drivers in the first place they will now be able to use their printer.
Wishing you all of the best and happy printing!
