I can't install the printer [HP DeskJet GT5820] in Windows 10 Home OS 1709 version 16299.19

HP Recommended
HP DeskJet GT 5820 All-in-One
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

After following the instructions on HP Installation Failure, it ended up installing the scanner and the printer did not install either in USB or Network in my Dell Inspiron 14 N4050. I will not install again the Windows 10 Home Fall Creators Update because I already got the latest update last October. There's no need to have a clean installation of Windows 10 Home so as to making a radical move just to reinstall my HP printer. Please send me an installation guide to install my HP DeskJet GT 5820 to my notebook. Your affirmative response to this querry is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
