Old L7580 printer not automatically "found" by HP Smart; need scanning capability; printing still OK

HP Recommended
OfficeJet Pro L7580
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Used HP Solution Center for scanning on old L7580 but no longer available due to Flash no longer supported. Followed all suggested steps to use the HP Scan & Capture app, including clicking on At this point, the L7580 is not listed so I installed the HP Smart app, which also does not come up with the printer. Is it just "too old" and I should get a new printer/scanner or is there some simple way to get the scanner to work (the printer is still working)? Connection is via USB; WiFi was not available on such an old device. Thanks.

Install and check the HP Scan Extended app, I believe this should help:
