had a document previously can open with Univers font. read from some websites this font normally comes installed when we install HP printers drivers. For every HP printer, there is a different list of software and drivers we can download and install. Normally which particular driver or software is the one to install to get the fonts installed also?

Some printers have Univers installed. Not knowing your printer model I cannot tell you whether yours has or not.

Having the font installed on the printer does not mean it is available in Windows though. It is possible that the Windows font is supplied with the printer. In that case you should be able to find it on the printer CD, or in a downloadable full printer software package (not just the driver). Again, this is printer dependent. Most printers do not come with Windows fonts.

You can of course buy the font, for example here.

I think that HP used to provide screen fonts which matched the printer-resident fonts on many LaserJet models.

The screen fonts could be (optionally) installed as part of a 'full software install' (rather than just a 'printer driver install') - for example, on LJ 2015 (see http://h20565.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/template.PAGE/public/kb/docDisplay?javax.portlet.begCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken&javax.portlet.endCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken&javax.portlet.prp_ba847bafb2a2d782fcbb0710b053ce01=wsrp-navigationalState%3DdocId%253Demr_na-c00763851-7%257CdocLocale%253D%257CcalledBy%253D&javax.portlet.tpst=ba847bafb2a2d782fcbb0710b053ce01&ac.admitted=1397127975603.876444892.492883150 ) the screen fonts were available with the driver packages for Windows XP (and earlier) and MacOs 10.4.3 (and earlier) operating environments.

But I'm not sure that HP provides this feature any more, with modern devices and operating systems.

... and a number of screen fonts were installed with previous versions of Microsoft Office (see http://www.microsoft.com/typography/fonts/product.aspx?PID=163 for Office 2010, although this doesn't appear to include Univers); not sure about Office 2013.
