I bought this scanner/printer/copier because I thought I could scan documents and save them as files on my computer. I don't have a manual, and I cannot figure out how to scan documents and save them on my computer. I am job hunting and need to scan and save my college transcripts, so that I can send them digitally to prospective employers. The files cannot be larger than 2 GB.
Question: How can I scan and save documents with the HP Photosmart C6280 scanner?

go to programs on the pc there you will find a program for the printer / scanner
place the document on the scanner then click on the program ( I have mine set as a shortcut icon on desktop)
a drop down will open with headings like jpeg to photo file
photo to e-mail, document to file and so on
select one check the settings then scan
when it comes up as save as , remember where the scanned item is going and then save and next
Did you install the HP software that came with the scanner? I believe it is called the "HP Solution Center". If so, you can open this program to scan. Once you scan the item, you will have the option of where to save the file.
Make sure the HP Photosmart's driver is successfully installed to your computer. Then click the Start button, All programs, Accessories. There should be a Scanner and Camera option. Just click for that one and follow the wizard to scan your document and save it to your computer.
