Scanning Directly from the Printer

While printing is a function that you can perform invariably on the printer, and usually from the computer, there are some scanning activities that require a little more awareness

A software is provided by HP to scan and copy, to and from the device; you can also accomplish this directly from the printer

  • Lift up the scanner lid and place the original document or media that you would like to scan on to the glass
  • The original copy job should be face down – also, visualize the guides engraved around the frame of the glass for directions to place the document
  • Close the lid and then reach out to the control panel on the printer device and press the hp deskjet 3632 scan button either in black or in color
  • The scanned file is invariably appears on the Windows Computer – again provided you have installed the relevant HP Software

Scanning from the Software

Install the HP recommended software from the manufacturer’s website 123.hp.com/setup and to use this, both the computer and the printer have to be turned on and connected


  • To scan the file into your Windows computer, place the document (like before) on the scanner glass

  • Scan an original document into your OSX computer from the printer software
  • To do this:
