HP Universal Print Driver (UPD)

Printer Support – Only with one versatile print driver, you can find and print automatically to supported HP devices and for some non-HP devices. HP Universal Print Driver (UPD) is an intelligent print driver that supports various HP LaserJet printers and MFP. In fact, this versatile driver developed by Hewlett-Packard was designed to simplify driver placement and management. Print drivers can be said to be sophisticated because they have the ability to find HP printing devices and automatically configure themselves to the capabilities of the device (e.g., Duplex, color, finishing, etc.).

When installing UPD for free on your PC or laptop, it communicates with supported devices to determine the unique print capabilities installed on each device.

HP UPD is a solution for Microsoft Windows that is available in two operating modes namely traditional and dynamic. In traditional mode, this HP UPD behaves similarly to other traditional print drivers. While in dynamic mode, the HP UPD provides many features such as discovery features, automatic configuration, and management that are very suitable for you mobile computer users.

Drivers also offer basic printing capabilities for many other printing devices. HP UPD is available on PCL5, PCL6, and Postscript-emulations (PS), and supports current Windows client and server operating systems (32-bit and 64-bit).

To find out what your printer is for this, see HP Universal Print Driver supported printers

If the UPD is not available for your printer, go to one of the following HP support documents for more information:
