Continuing inability to scan with Envy 5055

HP Recommended
iMac
macOS 10.15 Catalina

I've actually had scanning problems since I bought my new circa 2017 iMac in 2018. I'd had a Canon printer for years that scanned wirelessly like crazy with no problems. The new iMac would no longer support that printer. So I bought a new Canon that was a piece of junk and stopped scanning very quickly. After it began to have problems doing everything, I bought the HP Envy 5055.

Well, it stopped wanting to scan pretty soon,tpp. . I think I've already uploaded an app to solve the problem the first time. I am being asked to do it again. I guess I will go through this song and dance. I am very frustrated. Worse than that but I am trying not to use expressive but "bad" language.

I get this message:

"Visit 123.hp to get the HP Smart app or other HP scanning software for your computer".
And I will do that, but I can't help thinking back to the good old days of my old Canon, where I could scan many pages )LOTS OF PAGES), I knew where the scans were and it was transparent how to affix them to an email, and it just kept going. I guess it would behoove me to call Apple support and ask about this. In the meantime, if anyone has any words of wisdom, please, feel free.

Thank you, Trish
