HP OfficeJet Pro 9018e All-in-One Printer
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am trying to setup my all in 1 printer/scanner to my a network folder on my pc so scans automatically go in that folder, 

however I am not sure of my username & password. It gives me the following message:

User name and password are stored and encrypted in printer memory.

I have tried username of admin and password to log into PC but no success.

Any ideas?

Welcome to the HP support community.

 

I understand that you want to reset the printer, I am glad to assist you.

You might have to perform a semi-full reset on the printer.

The reset instructions are specific for your printer and performing those steps on a different printer may brick the device.  

I am sending you a private message with the steps to reset the printer. Please check the mailbox icon at the top-right corner of this screen.

 

I hope this helps resolve this issue completely.

To thank me for my efforts to help you, please mark my post as an accepted solution so that it benefits several others.

Cheers.
