How To Install HP Print Drivers for MacOS

This guide is intended to help Mac users waste time by installing HP print drivers manually. An easier and faster option is to use the HP Auto Installer but if you insist see below.

Again the HP Auto Installer performs each step automatically with one click.

How to steps

  1. Download the print drivers directly from HP's website. If the HP website is unavailable, you can download the latest HP print drivers here.
  2. Extract the print drivers.
  3. Install the print drivers and create the print queue.

Step 1. Download OEM Print Drivers

Go to enter your Model Number and click search.

Select the Model.

Other Drivers

The HP Universal driver is the recommended driver but depending on what you're printing the other drivers might be a better fit.

Step 2. Extract the Print Drivers and install the Package file

  1. Go to your Downloads folder, open the DMG file, run the Package file (You'll need the admin password to the computer).


The Konica Auto Installer does all of this with one click.

Step 3. Goto System Preferences & Create Print Queue

Go to System Preferences and click on Printers & Scanners.

Click on the + to create the print queue.

Select IP enter Address, Protocol Line Printer Daemon - LPD, enter print for Queue, enter a Name and select a model.


The Ricoh Auto Installer does this with 1 click.

It takes about 5 minutes for an above average user to install 1 print driver. Save yourself some time and just use the Ricoh Auto Installer.
