    With my printer/scanner attached, the only way I can get a scan is to

    Cortana

    Control Panel

    View devices and printers (this takes a long time to open)

    Select HP Photosmart 4400

    Scan a document

    Scan

    There must be a simpler way! Clues?

    Hi! Welcome to Windows Central. Yes when you click on devices and printers, it takes a long time to open. This seems to be a W10 bug. You might try to update your HP printer driver. Here's a link for your support for your printer. I know of no simpler way. How has your scan procedure changed or different from before W10? You can put a shortcut for your printer on your desk top. Right click on the printer and create short cut! Send it to your desk top!
    If you need more help, please join the forum so you can reply. I have a HP 7510. I can scan from my printer. Here's some links for your HP printer that might come in handy! I find these very helpful!
