    Windows 8 Pro with Media Center/Windows 7

    What HP Printer? There is a 'Solution Center" that comes with most newer HP Photosmart and other printers, it will pull up the ink levels, should show them when the program comes up.

    That part is up to the drivers,Win8 can find the drivers for an astonishing number of printers but they are rudimental and for more functionality you will have to turn to the printer manufacturer to get complete, proper ones with all the bells and whistles.

    I have a HP OJ 6500A Plus. The ink level worked in Win 7, but not when I upgraded to Win 8. None of the software for the printer works in Win 8. The printer still works though. You can still use the front panel on the printer to check the ink level.
