I own a HP Photosmart c7280 printer that is not listed as being compatible with winRT, but I made it work and I wanted to share it with my fellow surface friends. What I did was:
1-Click on desktop
2-With track pad click right while in lower left corner Or do what you need to do to get to control panel)
3-Click Control Panel
4-Click add printer, if you have a wireless printer make sure its on and your in range.
5-Your printer will come up in window, if it does hit stop
6-Click on your brand
7-Now if your exact model isn't listed find one closest to it in the same family. For me I am in the "Photosmart" family of HP printers.
8-It should be digitally signed.
9-Print test page and if it prints your all set to go!! If not you may have to try diferent drivers in that family but mine works perfect! In IE10 on the modern ui if you want to print a page hit Ctrl+P. As always, I take no responsibility for anything that may go wrong if you try this on your system. Good luck and please post if this worked and wht drivers you used as well as printer model so we can get a list of what drivers work with each model.
