The HP Utility is a very useful Mac download. You can also configure your HP scanning devices with the HP Scan Utility Mac functions.
From here you can set up your scanning quality and other settings. You can find the right version of the app for Mac OS X, which will help you to get the most out of your HP hardware.

Download the app from MacUpdate if you don’t have it installed on your Mac already. Launch Finder and go to your "Applications" folder and then look for an HP Folder which will have the app located within there.
The HP Utility allows users to view the installed hardware on their system in a list. The information in this window allows the user to actively monitor the printer and look at its current status.
This section shows users the current levels of ink or toner that are available in their HP devices. There is also a security feature called Ink Cartridge Protection which can be used if you do not want your ink cartridges to be used in another printer. This means that you can block other people from wasting your ink.
Supply info shows details about the model type and name of the replacement supplies that you will require if they run out. The HP Utility also shows you what your replacement options are for your particular printer setup.
From this section of the HP Utility you can find out about your printer’s model, the current printer driver that is installed on your Mac for that HP device, and the type of connection that it is using to communicate with your system.
This is also where you can print out a printer configuration page if you need to.
