The scanner icon on desktop is just a link to the scanner software, hosted in the Programs folder in Windows.

There are two possible solutions :

1 - Go to Start menu button and find te HP utilities, in Programs. In there locate the scanner icon. Right click on the scanner icon and chose Copy to copy from the dropdown menu, to copy the scanner link. Then paste it onto the Desktop.


2 - Unplug the printer/scanner USB cable and reinstall the HP software suite using original setup CD, and chosing to place an icon on the desktop when asked. This is taking more time, but it will be the best solution.

If you have misplaced HP disk you can download driver file from: HP Support & Driver

This problem may occur if you haven't installed the software properly. Try these steps to resolve it.
Install the latest drivers from the website. To download:

But before Installing the Software, use the Disc that came with the printer so you can do an L3_Uninstall first.

To go for an L3_Uninstall:
1 Go to My Computer (XP), Computer (Vista and Win7) 2 Right Click on the Driver CD, The one that has the HP Logo 3 Open Util 4 Open CCC 5 Double Click on the icon that says Uninstall_L3
The Uninstall will prompt you to restart the computer once it's done. After doing so, Install the newly downloaded software.

Why did the icons desappeared?


There are reasons why the icons of your computer disappeared.

1. It could have been hidden if the "Show Desktop Icons" has been disabled.

You can check the settings when you right click on your desktop, and select arrange icons by.

2. Or the virus could have modified your registry settings so the icons disappeared.

Photosmart C7250 All-in-One. Copier, fax and printer work. But I cannot find my scanner icon where it was on my previous computer.


Were you able to install the correct driver for your OS? Usually the scanner application can be found in the list of Programs >> HP Photosmar C7250. If what you are referring to is the icon on your System Tray (lower right corner), you can always add an icon there by right clicking the blank space in your system tray and choose properties. On the taskbar tab, click on Customize, look for the icon for your scanner, click for the behavior and from the drop down button, choose "Always show".

Try to scan also by pressing the scan button in your printer and press start to initiate a scan.
