Hi, i like to use an Arduino to Print on a hp printer.
i like to print numbers on paper, its a task wich should run by a pushbutton.
Can someone help, or let me know what to search?

If you want to print on an HP printer, then you need to research what the HP printer expects to see. How do you intend to send the data to the printer? What specific HP printer do you have in mind?

OK. Search the forum for threads into how to make a host USB port for the Arduino.

Search for the documentation for the HP language used by the HP Envy machine. Years ago, HP machines used languages that filled a huge documentation volume. I don't know what your machine has, but you need to find out.

Thank you for your tipps!
