I have an HP OfficeJet Pro 8600 Plus and I would like to Scan from the printer to the computer.  From all the advice I can see on these support pages they tell me to open HP Smart and enable scan to computer. I have searched all the settings throughout HP Smart and I cannot find anywhere to enable scan to computer. I have gone into the MAC settings and find the printer but again there is no where to enable scan to computer. It will not let me download a full HP Officejet Pro Full Feature Software and Driver for this OS it just lets me download HP Smart but that is not working. Scan to computer does work on both of my other Windows based PC's but when I open scan to computer on the printer itself it does not see the MAC laptop. I am a PC guy and I hate MAc's but I have to work with it so any information would be greatly appreciated.

I am 99% sure that scan to a computer ( from the front panel ) works only with WIN computers, for MAC you need to use the App
