@JLWTV5 Welcome to HP Community!


I understand that you would like to reset the admin password.


I can definitely help you change the printer's admin password!


1. Double-click on the printer icon on the desktop to open the HP Printer Assistant.

2. Click on the "Printer Home Page (EWS)" option.

3. This will open a webpage with the printer. Click on the "Settings" tab on top.

4. On the right, under "Security" click on "Password settings". (Verify the page if you are asked to.)

5. Type the password you want in both password fields (or leave it blank if you do not want a password) and hit "Apply".
