Scan button HP Deskjet 3637?

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Can I scan from the HP deskjet 3637? I don’t see a button on the control panel for scans, only copies. I have scanned from the app before, but I’d like to be able to hate a higher quality scan. Thanks!

Welcome to the HP User Community.


Update - Edit - Add information > User Guide and how-do scan document


Preparation and Information


Printers without printer control panels do not include all the options that the printer display panel would provide.



User Guide


This particular printer manual - likely an older version - mentions the HP full driver printer software (Page 49).

This is certainly an option for using the printer.

How to install the printer software is covered later in this message.


The general How-to-Scan Document here:

HP Printers - How to Scan


Original Content


What else?

You have been doing it right - that is, use HP Smart to scan.


Example - HP Smart - Windows - Scan > Presets Photo - Options



HP Smart - Windows - Scan > Edit > Options



What else?

If you have not done so, you can (should?) also install the Full Feature Software / full driver printer software.

Installing the printer software gives you access to HP Scan.

Installing the full driver printer software also supports installing another nice scan application: HP Scan and Capture



There are two parts to the Printer Software:

  • HP Smart application - supports printing and scanning PDF and Photos / Images.  HP Smart is supported in many regions and on many newer networked printers - The app is available from the  Microsoft Store .  HP Smart requires that you sign in using your HP Account credentials.  HP Smart benefits when the full driver printer software is also installed.
  • HP Full Feature Software / Full Driver printer software - supports printing and scanning from the web, printing in programs (for example, Word), and access to the full range of Printing Preferences / Shortcuts.  The full driver printer software includes HP Scan.  If the printer model includes built-in Fax hardware, the software supports the setup and use of the Fax driver.  No Sign-in required.


When installed,

HP Smart is listed in Settings > Apps > Apps and Features

HP Smart is never listed in Programs and Features


When installed,

The Full Driver printer software is listed in Control Panel > icon view > Programs and Features


The Full Driver printer software can also show up in Settings > Apps > Apps and Features






Software Installation Package - Information and Download

HP Easy Start Printer Setup Software 


Basic Instructions - Install the Full Feature Software / Full Driver printer software




  • If using VPN, shut it off to install software.  NOTE >> If you don’t know what this is, you are not using a VPN – ignore this part.


  • If the printer software is still / already installed, Uninstall the printer software  from Control Panel > icon view > Programs and Features > Restart the computer and log in – Reference Uninstall HP printer software and drivers


After the printer software is uninstalled, check that the printer is not still lurking in Devices and Printers

 If the printer is listed, Right-Click on the printer and "Remove" > Restart the computer and sign in.



  • Reminder:  If using USB cable between printer and computer, disconnect the cable before installing software.  Later... Connect the cable when instructed (near the end of the installation procedure).



  • Download and Save the Full Feature Software installation package or the Easy Start Software
  • Open File Explorer
  • Navigate to the folder in which you saved the installation file  (likely Downloads)
  • Right-Click on the installation package and “Run as Administrator
  • If using Easy Start > When asked, opt for "Full Driver" (exact wording might vary).
  • If using Easy Start > Skip any extra software / offers you do not want (wording varies).
  • After the software is installed, Restart the computer and log in
