Well, that's true.

To download software on all hp pavillions I had to get Linux, WIndows or another OS up and running. You may want to write in more detail what happened to this HP.

back to you

bought used hp not much money to go online huhh but i have never downloaded any software as yet

Now I have "used hp" and no money.

Maybe it's some Limited User account you are in. That stops downloading.

Can you share a little about the OS this HP runs, and if you are conversant with Windows accounts?

still hear

haveing a little trouble but im with windows not apple etc. and should probably just phone although some things i added may still relieve the mess

OK, in Windows

Create a new Admin capable account and log into that. A limited account is... limited.

where on browser

is that with file command edit ?

No browser would allow you to create

A new Windows account. Since I can't find which Window this unknown HP is, I must share generic answers that apply to Window NT to Windows 10.

Bring up a browser & go to where you want to download from.

Then click DOWNLOAD. That's all there is to it.
Good luck.

Re: download software

Can you download for example a pdf-file or a picture? Then most likely you can download anything, installing software. But maybe you can't install it. That's something totally different.
So please tell more about what you do and what happens.
