In the HP Scan Pro preview window is a dotted line box which indicates what part of the page will be in the final scan. This size is determined by the printer guessing which part of the image you want based on contrast. You can't turn this resizing behavior off, but you can adjust the dotted line box by dragging the edges of the box with your mouse.
If scans are taking a long time, you've adjusted the resolution too high. 200 dpi is enough.
Please ask your printing question in another thread as that is a different topic.
