Question about HP DeskJet F380 All-In-One Printer
I currently run the Hp F308 on XP.
However i am be getting a Vista Lap top.
If i install the Vista Fix for my printer, will i be able to print using Xp
or will it be set up for vista only
You need to download the drivers from HP website for VISTA.
If you wish to work printer in networking then you can also add printer in the Laptop by that method.
Let me know more how you need to go for ( since if your XP is a desktop, then I would recommend you to keep the printer connect with it directly and just use a LAN cable for your Laptop.)

The question as I read seems to think that the printer is set up for a specific operating system. The printer doesn't know anything except how to print. The computer that the printer is physically attached to can have the drivers for all operating systems on a network without those drivers being necessary on the computer originating the print job. That is part of the set up when sharing a printer on a network. If you are going to plug the printer into the computer you want to print from then set up the printer on each computer as a local printer. Unplugging the printer doesn't remove the driver and plugging it in to the other computer will automatically be detected regardless of the operating system.
