Software:

Now we can dive into the software more deeply.  As I mentioned before, the installation CD for your PC will install four programs.  The main shortcut installed is the HP Photosmart 6510 Series.  This is where you can access everything.  There is also the Web Connected Solutions.  Here you can access the HP e-Print Center.  Next up, we have Scanner Actions and this is where you find everything to do with the scanner.  Finally, we end up at the Help and Support.  Let's hope we don't need that too often.  Next is The Shopping Resources and this is where you check your printer ink level and shop online for refills.  Printer Preference and Privacy Disclosures round out the other options.

As I mention the other three programs are actually more like links to web pages.  In fact, I found some of them to be redundant since you can access them from the HP Photosmart 6510 Series shortcut.  The only exception is the HP Photo Creations - this is where you can design things like cards and calendars.

The HP 6510 e-All-in-One Photosmart printer comes ready to run.  All you have to do is follow the directions on the touch screen.  It took me a whole five minutes to complete the printer setup.  Another interesting thing is that you can add apps to the printer touch-screen, if you find something you like.

On the final page, we'll recap some details as we draw our conclusions.
