@MJCAS, Welcome to HP Support Community!


Follow the steps below-



  • Open File Explorer and browse to drive C under 'This PC'.
  • Open Program Files (x86), then open the HP folder and the printer model folder.
  • Open the bin folder, there right-click HPScan.exe, and select Send to > Desktop.



  • Start the scan program
  • On your taskbar right-click the HPScan button and select "Pin this program to taskbar"

I hope that answers your concern adequately. Let me know!
