Simultaneously use printer in Webservices mode, Wi-Fi Direct, Home Network and USB connected mode

HP Recommended
Deskjet 3777
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a basic question about my printers' features.  In the product documentation, it says that the printer can be connected in 4 modes.

(1) Direct connection via USB (required drivers to be installed on PC)

(2) Wi-FI direct (Printers own Wi-Fi Direct connect network)

(3) Connected to Home Wi-Fi network (it should be available to any device on my home wi-fi network)

(4) Web printer (Requires separate installation process)

I am able to use the printer in one of these modes at a time. But not simultaneously in all 4 modes. Product documentation is quite useless in this matter. I bought the printer with the assumption that I can use it in all 4 modes simultaneously.  

Q1 -  Is this even possible ??


Everytime I try a different way of printing, it asks me to install something and then I lose the earlier mode of printing. (Now I don't remember which mode I left it in the last time). I find it extremely frustrating and exhausting. The display on the printer shows solid lights on Wi-Fi direct, Home Wi-Fi and WebServices modes, which leads me to believe that the printer is available on all these modes.

Q2 - Am I wrong to presume that they should be available ?


I have installed the required drivers and printing softwares required for all the modes.

I am using a Windows 10 - 64 Bit OS laptop.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
