HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus SUCKS!!!

I have spent the last 9 hours trying to print pictures I took with my Canon 7D mkii and processed in Lightroom (& Photoshop), on my HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus with HP Premium Plus photo paper...

I definitely am sitting here, surrounded by printed pictures on 4x6 paper.. some pictures are piled up with 4-10 identical copies, because I tried so many different profiles trying to get the color right, but it's impossible!!!!

What the heck!?!

I know this isn't a photo specialty printer but geez! IT SUCKS!!!

I'm on Windows 10, I'm wondering if going back to Windows 7 will make it any better? I've been searching online and so far I've found that there aren't many profiles available for this printer, I really don't know if that makes a difference, I fell like maybe this just isn't a good printer for printing pics...?

After googling 'Best Photo Printers 2018' I see what ARE good printers for photos, I guess I'll have to resort to Costco and whatnot to print my pics until I get myself a decent photo printer (Shutterfly is most definitely NOT an option, I ordered ~200 pics from them and the quality is very bad!)

Might there be a way to FIX the color this printer is screwing up with my pictures? They're mostly too dark, too greenish/blueish, or just washed and terrible!

I beg for your opinions, reactions, feedback on my rant,

THANKS!
