    Open HP Director each time you use it

    Follow these steps to use a workaround to open HP Director each time you use the software. These steps must be repeated each time you use HP Director.

    NOTE : If you prefer a solution that does not require a workaround each time you open HP Director, skip to Solution two: Update the HP Director software.

    1. Open HP Director using one of the following methods:


      • From the desktop : On your computer's desktop, look for the HP Director icon, and then double-click it.

      • From the Windows taskbar : Click Start , click All Programs , click the HP or Hewlett-Packard folder, and then click HP Director.


      Although HP Director does not appear to be open , it is open and loaded into the computer's memory, but it does not open in a new window as usual.

    2. Without navigating to another open window, press Alt and Space bar at the same time. The Shortcut menu displays near the top-left corner of the computer.

      Figure 1: Shortcut menu


      If the Shortcut menu does not open, repeat steps 1 and 2 until it does.
    3. Select Minimize from the Shortcut menu.

      HP Director displays (minimizes) as an item on the taskbar (the row of open software programs that appears at the bottom of the desktop screen). If HP Director does not minimize, click Minimize again until it does.

    4. Click the HP Director icon on the taskbar. The software opens and functions normally.

      NOTE : The HP Director window and icons might appear larger than normal, but the software is functional.

    5. Repeat Steps 1 through 4 every time you use HP Director.
