HP recommends that you first get comfortable with using the "Scan Picture" and "Scan Document" on-screen "buttons" in HP Solution Center as explained in the previous steps. By doing this, you determine the scan settings that you use most often, and then you can more easily set up the scan button on your printer.
Important: Before you use the scan button on your printer, use HP Solution Center to create the settings for that button
. For example, you need to decide whether you want a settings prompt screen and a scan preview for each scan. Also, you must create the list of "shortcuts" that you want to display on the front panel of the printer.
To get started, click Settings
, click Scan Settings
, click Button Settings
, and then click the tab for Front Panel Scan Buttons
. Read through the options, and then create the settings that you want.
The steps to set up the scan button on your printer can vary depending on your printer model, and the version of software that is installed. For specific instructions, click the Help
button on the home screen or settings screens in HP Solution Center.
