    Hello! I wasn’t sure where to put this question – but here goes. I have a pretty old HP Deskjet D1455 printer that still works. It is a wired printer – no wireless connection – that I want to use occasionally with my HP Envy Win 10 laptop.

    I tried just plugging the printer into the laptop via USB hoping it might be recognized, but it wasn’t.

    So – how would I go about installing that printer so I can occasionally plug it into the laptop and use it. I don’t have an installation disk that I can locate, and I am not sure if I can download drivers that might do the trick.

    I hate to give up on it since it is a good backup – just doesn’t work with the laptops I use now – only with my old HP and Thinkpad – both running Win 7 and neither are connected to the internet anymore.

    Thanks for any ideas!
