HP helped me set up an App on my printer display to enable me to scan from the printer to Google Drive. However the App will not let me choose a quality above 150dpi - if I scan other ways it will let me go up to at least 300dpi.
Does anyone know how I can change this so that I am given a choice of a higher quality of scan when done straight from the printer?
Scanning from the device (printer) always provides fewer options, including lower resolution.
Anything that does not require extra software?
The closest you can get - and it is NOT using the printer display - is to use Webscan from your browser (or possibly from within HP Smart). Doing so, allows higher resolutions. Webscan requires that you choose your destination
Webscan is not a HP Smart Task.
Webscan – located in the Embedded Web Server (EWS) – No additional software
NOTE: Webscan feature is not available on Laser printers
If the printer is on the network,
If the EWS feature is available on your printer,
Open your favorite browser > type / enter Printer IP address into URL / Address bar
Tab Settings > Security > Administrator Settings > make sure Webscan is checked / enabled
Click Apply to save any changes
Tab Scan > Webscan
Set up Webscan the way you want it - for example, set the Source to ADF
Click Start Scan to scan your document / image using Webscan
After the scan is complete, Save the scan to your computer.
