Somewhere in the HP Scan app you (probably) installed should give the option to set it up.

did you install the basic driver, or full printer software package?

I must apologise for my belated response to your help. Unfortunately my wife suffers from a chronic and deteriorating illness, coping with which restricts my personal time. :y

Just checked, it was the full software package, done on the 11th June. :y

Thats a good start, check for the HP scan app, and open it and see what you can find.  should be the option to set it up in there.

just type the ip address of the printer into your web browser and a page will come up with details of your printer and the option to scan - works regardless of the software you loaded.

It will print a letter using my WP, Textmaker, with no problem, however when I try to scan a document to email it advises "Scan to email application not found."
That is unrelated to "default printer", which is a concept that is heavily deprecated on 64bit Windows (from XP 64bit onwards, nothing new to Win10).  Default printers hark back to 16bit Windows, all (true) 32bit applications should be using application managed printers and 64 bit apps must use application managed printers.  32bit Windows retained the default printer concept to an extent, because they supported the 16bit applications through a thunking layer. 64bit Windows does not support the 16bit Windows API.


So, back to your issue, it sounds like the scanning software has not installed properly/completely, or the email application - thunderbird in your case - is not defined as the default email handler.

Does the scanner application work to scan a document to a file?  If so, I'd suggest the latter. If not, I suggest the scanner application part of the printer software has not installed properly, or you are using the wrong application (not sure if that printer uses the inbuilt Windows scan app, or the HP specific HP Scan app, or something else completely.

Now sorted, I found this: https://support.hp.com/us-en/topic/printscandoctor which scanned my system and printer, fixed a problem, and asked me to restart, after which scanning to Thunderbird email now works.
Thanks to everyone for their help. :y
