HP Smart ... not so smart. Only Sees PDF files

I am having the same problem. I cannot print wirelessly using my laptop(works for the phone app). The HP Smart desktop app only recognizes PDF files. If I try to print directly from a Word Document, it shows under the printer name that a user intervention is required to print. When clicked, it just takes me to the app and doesn't, which, again, only works with PDFs. Please fix this.

I'm curious what version of HP Smart are you running?   I am running 75.1.298.0 .  If you click on the question mark on the left side it will tell you.   If you aren't running the latest you need to download the HP print suite and reinstall.   

 

Find it very odd you can't print from windows explorer.  So if you right click on a file you don't see print near the top in the subcontext menu?   I think that would be installed by any printer software so if you get the latest download for your printer and reinstall, I think it will correct it.    Good luck

I just bought and installed an HP Deskjet 2652 and I am having the exact same problem. HP smart is only seeing pdf files.

I found this post while looking for a possible solution.

The only possible solution at this point is don't use the software.

HP Smart ... not so smart. Only Sees PDF files

I have the same problem.

My printer HPOfficeJet 6600 was only feeding blank pages from my laptop (worked from my phone ok) so eventually I uninstalled the existing software and found the HPSmart app on my machine on rebooting.

I used it to set up the printer again (it didn't have to do much as everything was already there) .

Invited to print a document, the only option was PDF!

Is there any point persevering with this app? Aprt from the fact that it is slow and unresponsive (and looks horrible on a desktop, like all modern windows "apps" (we mustn't call them "programs" now) )

 

Or should I re-install the software I had before, OJ6600_1315-1.exe which worked?
