system requirements.

Open the Toolbox

1. On the computer desktop, click Start, select Programs or All Programs, click HP, click the

folder for your printer, and then select the icon with your printer s name.

HP Utility (Mac OS X)

HP Utility contains tools to configure print settings, calibrate the printer, order supplies online, and
find web site support information.

NOTE: The features available in HP Utility vary depending on the selected printer.
Ink level warnings and indicators provide estimates for planning purposes only. When you
receive a low-ink warning message, consider having a replacement cartridge available to
avoid possible printing delays. You do not need to replace cartridges until prompted to do so.

To open HP Utility

Double-click the HP Utility icon. This icon is located in the Hewlett-Packard folder in the
Applications folder at the top level of the hard disk.

Embedded web server

When the printer is connected to a network, you can use the printer's home page (embedded web
server or EWS) to view status information, change settings, and manage it from your computer.

NOTE: For a list of system requirements for the embedded web server, see Embedded web
server specifications.
To view or change some settings, you might need a password.
You can open and use the embedded web server without being connected to the Internet.
However, some features are not available.
