Solved!

HP 9020 scan resolution in HP software does not allow higher than 300 ppi, when should get1200 ppi

HP Recommended
HP Inkjet Pro 9025
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

For a brief time I could get up to 1200 ppi scanning with HP scanning software. Now the maximum resolution is 300 ppi. I'm not sure whether a Windows update or firmware update change this, but I certainly would like to have the scanning meet the specifications. Is there a fix for this problem?

So, this was possibly operator error. 😁 When using the HP Scan software to scan, if the setting is  "Document feeder if loaded," then, the highest resolution is 300 dpi, which is always the highest for the document feeder. So, if you want higher resolution, when using the flatbed, always select for source: Flatbed.

Firstly, let's update the printer's firmware, refer - HP Printers - Updating or Upgrading Printer Firmware

Thanks for these suggestions. I had already updated the firmware and I thought I had run the HP Print and Scan Doctor. Nonetheless, I downloaded the software and unfortunately on the "Finding and Fixing Problems," it locks up at WIA scan. So, still only 300 dpi for this scanner - not fixed, yet.
