Updated HP Smart today 11-24-2020 and was using Scan function. Initially the Edge Detect function worked as intended. After one hour it stopped working and I cannot get it back by changing any of the basic options.
HPSE is a subset an older Full Feature Software suite.
HPSE features are very similar to the HP Scan Software released after 2015.
Although HPSE appears to be a separate software, HPSE is dependent on the infrastructure provided by the Full Feature Software. The Full Feature Software for your printer should be installed before installing and using HPSE.
OPTIONAL: Add HP Scan Extended shortcut to Taskbar / Send to Desktop / Pin to Start
Open File Explorer > Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\HP\HP Scan Extended\bin
Right-ClickHPScan.exe > Select Pin to Taskbar
Right-ClickHPScan.exe > Select Send to Desktop (Create a Shortcut)
Right-ClickHPScan.exe > Select Pin to Start
HPScan Extended features include (and are not limited to): Single, Multiple scans, Image and PDF scans, Email as PDF / JPEG, Source selection, Page Size choices include Auto-Detect (extracts image / document boundary). Might include OCR (Save as Editable Text).
