I already have the printer installed and default in place, you haven't answered my question re is there a problem with my HP printer talking to windows 10 because it is slow in responding taking at least 5 minutes to print

No, I think the printer seems fine since you can print it from your phone. Please try to connect your printer using USB Cable. Cables are faster than wireless.
