K80 Director with Windows 8.1

I just bought a used K80 OfficeJet. It appears to be working OK using the front panel controls but I'd like to be able to operate it from my PC.

My operating system is Windows 8.1 64 bit.

Is there a Director software app available to do this  and, if so, where can I get it?

Re: K80 Director with Windows 8.1

HI dafaddah,


Thank you for being a member of the HP Support Forums.  I gather that you would like to learn if there is a full feature software and Windows 8.1 driver available for the Officejet K80 printer.


I’m sorry to say that there is not a full feature driver for Windows 8.1.  I have included the Install a Windows 8 Driver with Windows Update document.  It will walk you through installing the printer driver available with Windows 8.1.  It will also explain what limitations there are when using the Windows 8.1 driver.

Re: K80 Director with Windows 8.1

Many thanks for your prompt reply.

It is as I feared but so be it.

I have and continue to develop some 'work-arounds' so that I can do what I have to with the machine but it is unfortunate that HP doesn't fully support it because it is a very good product that could be made better with fully functional software.
