How to remove a scanner without uninstalling drivers

HP Recommended
HP MFP M477

Hello,

 

I currently have two printers (HP MFP M477) connected to one laptop and would like to only remove one of the printers. I went to control panel and selected remove device and the printer is gone. However, when I go to HP SCAN it still lets me choose from two profiles. How do i remove the scanner without uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers?

 

Thanks

Good point! but i could not find a direct link to download hp scan. 

 

Also is it possible to print to two identical printers but only have the option to scan from one of them using HP scan? 

I would only like one profile in HP scan to avoid confusion because there is no option to rename the scan profile in HP Scan

Scanning issues…

 

Please try this scan solution:

 

HP Scan Extended


For Windows:   ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/scanners/HPScanExt/HPScanExt.msi


Once downloaded and installed, go to Start > All Programs > HP > HP Scan Extended > Run "HP Scan Extended"

 

Check all your settings and expand all tabs and all + signs to see all options that available.

 

Make searchable PDFs scans with this free scanning software - https://www.naps2.com/   

 

NAPS2 also allows you to:

 

  1. Maximize and resize the scanning screen on your computer.
  2. Scan over 300 ppi from the Glass or ADF.
  3. Save multiple pages (over 300 ppi) to one PDF file.

Let us know.

This did not work, it still shows two scan devices to choose from.
