Welcome to the HP Community.

The following assumes the printer software is still installed and you lost "just the icon" on the Desktop.


Two locations:

The printer software

NOTE:  Replace the printer name in the example with YOUR printer

C:\Program Files\HP\HP OfficeJet Pro 9020 series\Bin


Executable is the name of your printer + ".exe"


HP Scan location

NOTE:  Replace the printer name in the example with YOUR printer

C:\Program Files (x86)\HP\HP OfficeJet Pro 9020 series\bin



General instructions

Open File Explorer

Navigate to the folder

Right-Click on the name of the executable > Send to the Desktop



Specific instructions for creating a Printer Assistant (printer software) shortcut

(Not necessary for HP Scan)


Just sending the printer software to the Desktop as an icon works - but may include an "extra" window that pops up when you open the shortcut.  The following instructions remove this "extra" bit.


NOTE:  Replace the printer name in the examples with YOUR printer


Open File Explorer

Navigate to the bin folder in which the printer software executable is located.

For example

C:\Program Files\HP\HP OfficeJet Pro 9020 series\Bin

Right-Click on the executable for the printer, for example HP OfficeJet Pro 9020 series.exe

Send to Desktop (create the shortcut)

On the Desktop, Right-Click on the new shortcut > Properties

At the end of the line entry in “Target” (after the last quote) add the following words:  -Start UDCDevicePage


Click Tab General

If you like, change the name of the shortcut.

For example,

Remove the default entry / name HP OfficeJet Pro 9020 series.exe – Shortcut

And enter a new name, for example: Printer 9020

If you like, change the shortcut icon to one of your own icons or one of those available on the system

Tab Shortcut > Change Icon >

Click through the error (no icons found)

Select from the standard list OR Browse through your custom icon collection

Select an icon

Click OK to save the changes

I found the answer by accident, and it seems true, so I'll mark this as a solution and explain it!  The file no longer exists.  It was replaced with other programs that do similar things with other files
