HP Smart App, is it available for Chrome OS?

HP Recommended
OJP 7740
Chrome OS

I'd like to use the scanner feature on my OJP 7740 from my Chromebook.  I can't find the proper tool!  I'd like to scan from the ADF, save to my Google Drive, and possibly run OCR.


Can this be done?  HP Cloud Print, works but doesn't have the scan feature, that I've found...

Hi @JoelinIowa


Welcome to the HP Support Community. I'd be happy to assist you with the  "How to scan from Chromebook" issue. 


Follow the instruction below-


Access the Webscan feature in the printer's Embedded Web Server (EWS) to save scans to a Chromebook.

  1. Connect the printer to the same wireless network that the Chromebook is connected to.

    • Printers with touchscreen or text-based menus: Select the Setup, Network, or Wireless menu to start the Wireless Setup Wizard. When prompted, select the name of your local network, and then follow the on-screen instructions to enter the network password to complete the connection.

    • Printers with buttons only: Press and hold the Wireless button for at least 3 seconds or until the light starts blinking, and then press the WPS button on the router. When the wireless light on the printer is solid, the connection is complete.

  2. Obtain the printer's IP address, the unique identification number assigned to the printer on the network.

    On printers with touchscreen or menu-based control panels, find the IP address in the Wireless menu or in network settings. For printers without a control panel menu, print a network configuration page to obtain the IP address.

    Example of the IP address on a printer control panel

  3. Type the IP address in the Chrome browser address line, and then press Enter to open the printer Embedded Web Server (EWS).

    Example of an IP address entered into the Chrome address bar

  4. Click Scan in the top menu.

    A 'You cannot use this function because it has been disabled' message displays.

    Webscan error displays in the EWS

  5. Click Settings in the top menu, click Security, and then click Administrator Settings.

    A message displays that you are being redirected to a secure HTTPS-enabled page. Click OK or Redirect to HTTPS.

  6. If a 'Your connection is not private' message displays, click Advanced, and then click Proceed to [Printer IP address].

  7. In the Administrator Settings, select the box next to Webscan or Webscan from EWS, click Apply, and then click OK.

  8. Return to the Scan menu, select from the available scan settings, and then click Start Scan.

  9. Right-click the scanned item, and then click Save as to select the file type, name, and destination folder or cloud-based service.
