Solved!

HP Deskjet F4440 no longer recognized by Windows 10 pc after upload of latest HP printer drivers

HP DeskjetF4440 printer
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I just downloaded the most recent print drivers and software for HP F4400 series printers to my HP Deskjet F4440 printer.  Evidently now Windows 10 (version 1809) is no longer recognizing the printer.  When I look under Device Manager > Printer, I see that "This device is operating properly".   When I look under Control Panel   > Devices & Printers I see my printer listed under "Unspecified".  When I attempt to print from MSWord I see a message that "this printer is not connected".  I've downloaded the HP Print and Scan Doctor app and ran through all the diagnostics it suggested ... with no success.  I'm out of ideas.  Can anyone suggest a course of action?

 

Many thanks,

rmaz

Dear Mans -

Pure genius.  The script you sent me worked marvelously!  My printer is now back in working order - my wife is happy - and life is once again good.  Many thanks for your generous help and for sharing your knowledge with the HP printer end-user community.
