    Go to the HP website and make sure you not only have the ( correct) latest printer drivers for this mfp, but also see if there is a CD/DVD you can request that will let you install the software that came with this mfp.

    I'm guessing that the control panel applet is part of the software install from the CD.

    Another thing, re-reading what you say, you 'can' recieve faxes?
    If you are sending a fax, don't you just choose the 'fax' as your printer and send it this way?

    On the webpage for the device, there are options for what functionality will be shown...
    I can't check here as we have embedded control systems which override but I would check on the devices specific webpage.
