Here’s a brief tutorial to help you enable scan options in the HP Officejet 6500A Plus All-in-one printer. The steps should work for most of the latest HP web-enabled printers.

Note: HP sent me a review unit of the above printer, and the steps are Windows-only. If you need help setting up the printer, refer to our HP printer set up post.

Step 1: Go to Control Panel –> Device and Printers and double-click on the HP printer icon. You should find Scanner Actions there. Under that, click on Activate Scan to Computer.
