Estimated Ink Level feature in HP Deskjet 2050 J510 printer

Does anyone know why the shortcut of the HP Deskjet 2050 printer no longer has the estimated ink level feature?  It was there until 12/5/12 and now the entire window has changed. Now it only has the options to "See whats printing", "Customize your printer", and Set preferences".  I can.t find any reference to any updates that may have changed this, thus I have no restore point.  The only thing that has changed recently is the new version of the HP Support Assistant.  Could this have an effect on the printer software?

@rodustep,
The fix for this issue would be to uninstall current software and download the lastest drivers for your printer. I am linking you to the software and driver page just select operating system and select full feature driver.

Deskjet 2050

Let me know how it goes.

I wish someone would tell me what to do.    This is rediculous.    Why cant we see the ink levels anymore.  Is it a secret?
