[Tutorial] How to scan to Computer with AIO HP Printers


The Mint HPLIP software does not offer this facility. (Sources)


Option 1 Creating pdf with multiple files.

- Advantage: you can create queued pdf files.

- Disadvantage: you need to send the scan from your iDevice to your computer.


At first we need to add an GDrive account:

System Parameters => Online Accounts

When existing account just log in with your creditentials or create an GMAIL account:

And now an network shared folder appears on the Desktop:

In this one i create an folder named Scan.


Now we need just to download the HP Smart APP here:

Apple App Store => https://apps.apple.com/app/hp-smart/id469284907

Google Play Store => https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... trol&hl=en


After pairing the printer, we can scan and moving the files to the Drive Scan folder on your iDevice.

And voila your scan is on your computer :)


Option 2 Scan with EWS.

- Advantage: scan from your web browser and can download directly to your computer.

- Disadvantage: can't create queued pdf files.
