How to Use an HP Laserjet 3055 As a Scanner

The HP Laserjet 3055 is one of Hewlett Packard's multifunction printers, meaning it combines laser print technology with the ability to scan and fax documents. In order to use the printer with a computer, the printer's drivers and full software package must be installed on the computer. You can either use the installation disc that came with the printer, or download the software on HP's website. Once the software is installed on your computer, the process of scanning a document is mostly done on the printer's control panel.

When you are done making any changes you wish, click on the "Save Scan" button and choose a location on the computer's hard drive to save the file.
