Drivers for the HP Laserjet 1020 To Printer drivers are an essential piece of software that serves as a medium of communication between your computer and the printer. Without the drivers being installed correctly on your computer, it is quite likely that your printer will not perform its task of printing correctly. Now you may have recently moved from windows to MAC, or you may have brought your very first printer, you will have to install your HP Laserjet 1020  Drivers for the Mac Os.

My good quality Scottish blood made me see sense and I decided to wait for an updated driver rather than spend more money on something new.. but I still had to get stuff printed eventually and it just kept niggling away at me until I suddenly remembered my old Laser in the loft!

This, while not a hard thing to do but do requires specific steps executed in the right order as you may very well understand that MAC works differently. HP doesn’t explicitly have a set of Mac drivers for the Laserjet 1020, there is a workaround. To install drivers for HP Laserjet 1020 on a Mac OS X, follow these instructions. In the search, it turns out there is an HP printer driver that can be downloaded here which is a site owned by Apple’s own supporters. But it turned out to be quite large, around 573MB. After the download is complete, the collection of drivers is installed into your Mas Os computer so that the printer driver collection increases. Then the addition of the printer is done by plugging the printer into an existing USB port and click the “+” button in the bottom left position column “Printer”.

Step One of Two:

Mac OS is Turn off and unplug the printer and Download and install the drivers. See external links below. Note that the file is very large and will take some time to download. If you take the time to look at the supported printer models, you’ll notice that HP Laserjet 1020 isn’t among them. Don’t worry about that just yet.
