    The best method is to disconnect the printer if connected to PC, then click on the device and the reinstall the software first before connecting the device. If it is on the network, Wireless, just remove and reinstall software and drivers. Make sure it has the driver for Windows 10.
    It's not the computers that keep having problems, it's the users!!

    Well I tried your suggestion..When I go to install the software it stops at the point when I connect the USB printer and then Win 10 automatically installs it as a Unspecified and not a printer
    Thank you !!!

    According to the HP.com page below, the HP Photosmart 7350 is not supported in Windows 10:

    Can't say I blame you as there are still issues with 10 to be resolved. Plus, there is a new anniversary update coming and I have no idea what is going to happen with this.

    I haven't upgraded myself. I think I'll hang on to my Windows 8.1 for a while more.
