Hi,

I am currently using a HP DeskJet 710C printer on a Windows XP desktop PC, which works fine.  This older printer uses a parallel port connection, which my motherboard doesn't have - so I use a parallel port to USB port adapter.  If I buy a new Windows 10 PC, will I still be able to successfully use my printer on it without problems (with the adapter)?

Thanks.

I had a look on the HP support site but it just says that:

1) The product has been retired and is no longer supported by HP.
2) All official HP support content for this product has been removed from this web site.

 

In addition, when I did a Google search for "HP DeskJet 710c Windows 10" I found several posts regarding people struggling to get the printer working on Windows 10.

https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=HP+DeskJet+710C+Windows+10

 

However, the HP DeskJet 710c Printer is on the "HP Printers - Windows 10 Compatible Printers" list here:

So I'm not sure if it would work or not.  Any ideas?

I cannot give a definite answer to this question but I would have thought the simplest way to test this would be to try it on a computer running 10. If you have a friend who has a Win 10 laptop and is willing to let you install the drivers on their laptop see if you can print from the laptop, or if it will even recognise the printer.
