Hi all, can you please tell me how to set up the ability to use the scanner from two computers?
I'm not good at this, I'd appreciate your help!

I can use both of my devices from a number of computers after installing the software for them, Win11Pro, Win10Pro, Win10Home and Linux. And it works with Wired and Wireless computer connections to the Router. BUT, both printers, HP OfficeJet Pro and HP LaserJet Pro, are connected by Ethernet cable to the Router.

Your My Computer gives nothing about your computers/devices.

This can be set up. Windows has features for sharing the scanner with other computers. With this feature, a scanner attached to one of your networked devices can be accessed from any other computer on your local network or Wi-Fi. Instructions, how to connect a scanner to a pc: How To Share Scanner Over Network: Complete Guide as I recall there is even a video. There are also tools you can use which will make the task a lot easier.
