HP ePrint and Share

What is HP ePrint and Share?

HP ePrint Software (formerly HP ePrint Mobile Print Driver) is a mobile print driver for Windows or Macintosh computers that supports cloud printing, HP ePrint Wireless Direct printing, and network direct printing from any application to any HP ePrint printer. It provides mobile printing features including searching for and connecting to compatible printers, duplex printing, and multiple pages per sheet. It also can print directly to network connected HP Postscript printing devices. It is the HP mobile print app for PCs.


The most common release is 1.1.0, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. When installed, it will add a context menu handler to the Windows shell in order to provide quick access to the program. The setup package generally installs about 62 files and is usually about 114.73 MB (120,308,127 bytes).
