OffieJet is essentially a brand name used by its manufacturer to describe an inkjet technology based printer for both home and office use. Being based on the inkjet technology it implements the same process of using ink droplets to form the final output image on the print media. The device driver is responsible for sending the instructions from the requesting software application to the supported printing hardware component. The instructions will partly determine how the ink levels in the cartridge will be used to create the droplets. For these types of printing hardware components the printer heads are normally incorporated into the cartridge providing for better control of the printing process. Aside from the instructions sent by the software application the configuration settings based on the computer user's preferences also partly determine the quality and speed of the printing process implemented by the HP OfficeJet K60 device.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
The instruction sets are sent to the HP OfficeJet K60 as electronic impulses which determine how the ink in the cartridge will be coursed through the printer nozzles. The instruction sets are carried from the host computer system to the printing hardware component via the Universal Serial Bus interface port. The HP OfficeJet K60 USB driver is responsible for maintaining the communication infrastructure that allows for the bidirectional communication traffic between the connected devices. Essentially what this device driver does is to ensure that the printing tasks are properly routed to the supported hardware component. It also allows the printing hardware to send alerts, notifications, and other types of messages to the host computer system which are relative to the printing process or refers to the current status of the machine and its resources. The device driver is also partly responsible for verifying if the font types used in the document to be printed are supported by the hardware component. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and HP OfficeJet K60 USB errors before installing any driver updates.
