Officejet Pro 8500 A910 fax from PC driver

Can this device fax directly from a users PC? I installed the full software solution from the supplied installation disk and it only installs the printer driver, no fax driver. As per the user guide you should have a "fax" driver in order to send a fax directly from your PC. I also cheked the HP website for a fax driver, non found. See instructions below from user guide.


Send a standard fax from the computer

You can send a document on your computer as a fax, without printing a copy and

faxing it from the printer.


Faxes sent from your computer by this method use the printer’s fax

connection, not your Internet connection or computer modem. Therefore, make

sure the printer is connected to a working telephone line and that the fax function is

set up and functioning correctly.

To use this feature, you must install the printer software using the installation program

provided on the HP software CD provided with the printer.



Open the document on your computer that you want to fax.


On the File menu in your software application, click Print.


From the Name list, select the printer that has “fax” in the name.


To change settings (such as selecting to send the document as a black fax or

a color fax), click the button that opens the

Properties dialog box. Depending on

your software application, this button might be called

Properties, Options, Printer


, Printer, or Preferences.


After you have changed any settings, click OK.


Click Print or OK.


Enter the fax number and other information for the recipient, change any further

settings for the fax, and then click

Send Fax. The printer begins dialing the fax

number and faxing the document.
