HP 6800 printer

I have an HP 6800 printer. The installation installed drivers for the printer and fax feature. The two drivers display as one in Devices and Printers. I don't use the fax. Is there a way to remove it but leave the printer driver?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Actually, if you don't need the fax, you can uninstall the HP drivers entirely ... and then use Windows' built-in "Add Printer" feature to simply install the Windows drivers for that printer.    This works fine for printing.

When I did that before, I lost the scanner functions of the printer.

It should still scan just fine via the PC ... just not via the buttons on the printer.   Did you try that?

I am switching to a new tablet so I will try installing drivers from Windows as you suggested.  Not sure if I will be able to do that with Wifi connection to the printer.
