HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus set up scanner

I recently purchased the 8600 scanner.  I set it up to print wirelessly and it works.  I need this unit for scanning wirelessly but the directions do not even come close to what shows up on the screen.  This machine is used in a small office environment and will eventually have 3 computers attached. 

 

HP tells me to go to the printers page and right click on the printer then click on Properties and select scanner.  That is not an option and I cannot find anywhere that tells me what to do to set up the scanner for use on the network.  This prohibits me from setting up a network folder to send scans to.

Re: HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus set up scanner

What OS are you using?

 

Did you install the full software package for the printer, or did you install the printer using Windows' drivers?

Re: HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus set up scanner

My HP OfficeJet Pro 8600 Plus is connected to the network and prints from my MAC and my husbands Dell laptop running Windows 7.  From the MAC I can scan and fax, but I can't seem to get these utilities working from the pc.  HELP, please.

Thank you,

Student

Re: HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus set up scanner

I recommend taking a look at this document to try and find the answer to your issue.

 

How to Scan: Windows 8

 

If that document doesn't help, reply back to me with some more details. 
 

How are you trying to scan?

Are you getting an error message when you try?

Or anything else you might think would be helpful. 

 

Thanks,

Kyle

Re: HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus set up scanner

Hello,

If you have installed the printer s/w, then on the Desktop, you'd find Printer icon.

Click on the printer icon, which should launch UDC/ Printer Assistant.

In the Printer assistant window, click on "Scan Photo/ document"

 

If you have not installed the printer s/w and if you PC works on Win 7 / Win 8, then please download HP Printer Install Wizard from www.hp.com/go/tools 

Regards,
Jabzi

Re: HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus set up scanner

I am trying to setup the scanner on my HP Officejet Pro 8600.  The instruction on the screen says to go to the Scanner management page, but I have no idea where this is.
