Thanks for the reply, but I have done this several times, with NO result. I also can't place a printer icon on my desktop, which is odd. I am thinking seriously of going back to 8...10 is full of nasty surprises like this.
Thanks for the repy. There is NO printer icon when I do as you suggested. I am not sure how this is supposed to work, but seriously, going to Windows 10 was, in hindsight, not such a good idea for a novice like me. I did discover that i can scan from my HP Photosmart to a memory stick, and then transfer it to my computer. So a few extra steps, but at least I can do some scans now. Good luck to everyone!
