Receive faxes to your computer using HP Digital Fax (Fax to PC and Fax to
If the printer is connected to your computer with a USB cable, you can use HP Digital Fax (Fax to PC
and Fax to Mac) to automatically receive faxes and save faxes directly to your computer. With Fax to
PC and Fax to Mac, you can store digital copies of your faxes easily and also eliminate the hassle of
dealing with bulky paper files.
Received faxes are saved as TIFF (Tagged Image File Format). Once the fax is received, you get an
on-screen notification with a link to the folder where the fax is saved.
The files are named in the following method: XXXX_YYYYYYYY_ZZZZZZ.tif, where X is the sender's
information, Y is the date, and Z is the time that the fax was received.
NOTE: Fax to PC and Fax to Mac are available for receiving black-and-white faxes only. Color
faxes are printed instead of being saved to the computer.
