I accidentally deleted my hp director icon from my computer i dont know how to restore my hp director


If you have just deleted the icon from desktop and not uninstalled then we can put a shortcut back on desktop

Click on START button
click on MY Computer
Open MY Computer icon from Desktop

Open Local Disk C:\
Open Program Files
Open HP Folder
Open Bin Folder
You will find a file by name HPDIREC
Right click on the file name and Click create shortcut on desktop ( this icon will not look exactly like the HP Director icon you deleted )

Close the window and you will find the HP Direct icon on desktop

If not, you can uninstall the software from Add/remove programs under control panel and install the latest software for your printer. Click on the download button below to open HP website to download the software by selecting your operating system

*Note : HP Director is not longer designed by HP. IT is replaced with a new Software called HP Solution Center

If the patch or the updates did not work on the link I sent you try this Workaround: Open HP Director each time you use it If the update to HP Director is not available, or if you have installed the update and the HP Director window still fails to open, try this workaround.
  1. From desktop, double-click the HP Director icon to load the program into the memory. HP Director will not open at this step. Do not click anything else on the screen until Step 2 is completed.
  2. Press the Alt key and the Space bar together, and then select Minimize from the menu that appears at the upper left corner of the window. If necessary, click it again until HP Director minimizes. HP Director software displays as an item on the task bar (the row of open software programs that appears at the bottom of the desktop screen).
  3. Click HP Director on the task bar. The software opens and displays normally.
  4. Repeat Steps 1 through 3 every time you use HP Director.
    NOTE: The HP Director window might appear larger than normal, but the software is functional.
Cause In October 2006, Microsoft released Internet Explorer 7. The HP Director software that shipped with some HP products introduced between 2002 and 2004 may not be compatible with Internet Explorer 7. The HP Solution Center software, which replaced HP Director software on products introduced after 2004, is compatible with Internet Explorer 7 and does not exhibit this issue.

No HP Director

I had this same problem when switching to our new pc and still running xp. I was told that the new pc was installed with the new version of the program and had to uninstall the new version and load the old from the cd in order to use the programs I was framiliar with. Check with HP tech support and have them help you through the uninstall.

HP Director

First thing you should do is uninstall the HP director software you have if it is installed and doesnt work. Uninstalling will depend on your operating system - post again with details and we can talk you through it if you are unsure how. Next you need to go to this link; Select your operating system version and download the software. Install it, follow the on-screen instructions and you should be able to access it. Any problems doing this, please ask again, Hope this helps :)

Hp director

It could be about this: I had same problem until I found a review somewhere - even HP technical support was totally useless - until HP FINALLY decided to up date its drivers to account for my/many people's downloading of Internet Explorer 7. As this is now done, and you cannot easily uninstall IE7 and go back to IE6: try again (1) HP Director and if not (2) I think update drivers or (3) uninstall / reinstall. Hope it helps.
