Printer won't print. Wants to save it.

Office Jet Pro 8725
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

When I send a document to the printer, it won't print it.  Instead, the printer wants to save the document.

Hi @Dudeman8226


Welcome to the HP Support Community. 


I'd suggest you to check if the printer is set to default or not. If the printer is not set to default, try these steps - To choose a default printer, select the Start  button and then Settings . Go to Devices > Printers & scanners > select a printer > Manage. Then select Set as default


If the issue still persists, try these steps -


Step 1 HP Print and Scan Doctor - 

Click on this link to download and run HP Print and Scan Doctor 


Step 2 Re-install the printer drivers - 

1. In the search box, type and open "Uninstall a Program".

2. Look for HP Printer software.

3. Right-click to uninstall.

4. In the search box, type and open “Devices and printers”.

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

6. Open 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 Once the software and drivers are removed.

13. Restart the computer.

14. Download and install the software and drivers from here.

15. Click on the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions. 


Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
