How to get Print Preview function on HP Officejet 8710

HP OfficeJet Pro 8710
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

I've found posts and answers about adding a Print Preview function to other HP printers in the 6000 series (by adding another driver), but I didn't want to take any chances and mess something up ... thought I'd just ask instead.

 

Does anyone know HOW to add a Print Preview function to this newer HP printer? Such a waste of paper, and too many steps and disc space used by saving to PDF or printing to file just to view it.

 

Thanks in advance.

How to get Print Preview function on HP Officejet 8710

Hi @lunadancer,

 

Welcome to the HP Forums!

 

Thank you for posting your query in this forum, it's a great place to find answers.

 

I reviewed your post and I understand that you want to know how to add print preview function on the printer.

 

Don’t worry, I assure you I will try my best to get this sorted.

 

I would like to inform you that, the print preview option is independent of the printer software and it is dependent on the application you are printing from. However, to confirm have you tried a different application?

 

If the issue persists in all the applications, I recommend you do clean uninstall and reinstall the printer software and check.

 

Here is how it is done.

 

1.) In Windows, search for and open Programs and features

2.) Select your HP Printer

3.) Select Uninstall

4.) In Windows, search for and open Devices and printers

5.) In the Devices and Printers windows look for your HP printer. If you see it listed right-click on it and choose 'Delete' or 'Remove Device'

6.) Open up the run command with the "Windows key + R" key combo.

7.) Type printui.exe /s and click Ok. (Note: there is a space in between “printui.exe” and “/s”)

8.) Click on the "Drivers" tab

9.) Look for HP Printer driver. If you see it Click on it and click Remove at the bottom

10.) Select Ok

11.) Select Apply and Ok on the Print Server Properties windows

12.) Close Devices and Printers

13.) Restart the PC

 

14.) Download and install the printer software from the below link.

15.) Connect the USB cable ONLY when prompted and follow the on-screen instructions.

 

Let me know how it goes and you have a great day!

How to get Print Preview function on HP Officejet 8710

I have the same request---to be able to see a preview before I print.

I read one or two solutions offered by HP and, I'm sorry to say, they are way too involved just to see a preview.

Please bring back or put the preview function back.
