Follow the steps below to perform HP Printer Installation on your Windows PC: First of all, download the HP Smart app from the HP website. If you have already tried connecting the USB cable to your PC, then first remove it. Also, go to the Printer & Scanners and remove your HP printer from the list. Just select your Printer option and click on Remove device. Select Yes to confirm the action and then restart your PC. When the computer starts, open the HP Smart App and follow the on-screen steps. If the setup doesn’t start on its own, then click on the Plus sign to add your HP printer manually. When the app prompts you to connect the USB cable, make sure you do not connect it through a docking station or USB hub but direct to the USB port.
