Windows 7: Just need a simple answer

Just need a simple answer

OK, I made the big mistake of going from Vista to Windows 7 a couple of weeks ago. Today I installed a new printer (HP F4480). Now I can't seem to get hold of things I scan. It kept asking me for a program. After exhaustive roaming around for about 3-4 hours I gave in and down loaded PDF suite 11 or something for 14 days free trial. Surely there must be a simple solution so I can carry on as I have for the last 12 years or so. I am not a Pup, in fact I am 71 but have a reasonable grasp of things, so if you can help I would be VERY greatful.

Hi Jvsimo1, since you installed Windows seven have you installed Windows Live Essentials, if not I suggest that you do and you will see a scanning section then.

Try this and see if it helps you.

Do you have the installation disc from the HP F4480 with the scanner program on it ?

There should be HP Solution Center on the disk that came with it.

What is HP Solution Center?HP Solution Center is the main software program that you use to control and maintain your All-in-One printer. The program is part of the Full Feature software and driver package, and cannot be downloaded separately . HP Solution Center acts as a central point of access for tasks such as scanning, printing, and copying, and also provides access to the following features:
  • Product settings (such as scan and print settings)
  • Product help and troubleshooting
  • Links to shopping and supplies
  • Other HP software programs (such as photo-editing software)
