Hi @WanderG,

 

I'd like to help!

 

Changing from a USB to a Wireless Connection

 

Change the connection type with the HP Printer Setup & Software utility or with the HP Smart app for Windows 10. Leave the USB cable connected until you are prompted to disconnect it.

  • HP Printer Setup & Software utility: Search Windows for 'HP', and then click the name of your printer in the results to open HP Printer Assistant. Click Utilities or Tools in the top menu bar, click Printer Setup & Software or Device Setup & Software, and then click Convert a USB connected printer to wireless to launch the utility.

    Figure : Convert a USB connected printer to wireless utility in HP Printer Assistant

    Convert a USB connected printer to wireless utility in HP Printer Assistant

Follow the instructions to complete the USB to the wireless setup.

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.

Thank you very much for responding.  I did not see it until now as it went to my spam folder.  I am elderly and not very technical.  How can I change my printer to wireless if my computer is hard wired?  I have been afraid to go wireless because of the vulnerability.  I feel safer being hard wired.
