I have a HP15 Notebook and want to download scanner software from HP to my laptop so I can scan from my printer to my Laptop. Not having much luck talking to HP. They just want to sell me something called "SmartFriend." Can anyone out there help me?
Download-and-Save the current version of theEasy Startwrapper to install your print software
If usingUSB: Disconnect the USB cable between the printer and computer before installing the software.
Right-Click on the downloaded package and "Run as Administrator" to start the installation
When asked, Select to install the “Full Driver” / “Full Feature Software”
If usingUSB: Connect the cable when instructed to do so (near the end of the installation process).
After the software is installed,Restartthe computer and log in.
Notes >> Easy Start... The Journey
Full Administrator Rights are required to complete the HP Software installation.
About 2/3 of the way through the setup, you will be given the opportunity to select the software - select the "Full Driver" set (as opposed to the basic driver or other application).
You can skip / ignore suggestion(s) that you add the HP Account – you’ll need the account at some point, for now, you can skip this suggestion (as many times as it insists it’s a good idea) during the full driver software installation.
If you see it, you can skip / ignore suggestion(s) regarding Instant Ink subscription. Instant Ink subscription is NOT mandatory.
Full driver includes print and scan functions supported by your printer and provides the printer features on which other applications / software might depend.
HINT: Watch out for and UNCHECK unwanted extra software
NOTE: Adobe Reader DC software can be installed even if you do not normally open / view / print PDF files directly from the Adobe Reader DC software.
