Getting my 4050 scanner to be the default scanner

I cannot get the 4050 scanner to be my default scanner when using HP Photosmart. I originally spoke to techgurus (Wiz) on friday Oct 3. I have since uninstalled and reinstalled the program 3 times. In addition I have downloaded and reinstalled the program 3 times but it still does not work. I downloaded drivers from the HP website. I also tried as was suggested to put the scanner icon on my desktop but that didn't work. It still does not work. I received a e-mail commenting on your assistance. I emailed back that the problem was still not solved. You e-mailed back that I would hear rom you in 24 hours. I am still waiting. Please help me.

In the software settings or preferences you should be able to make it the default and if you have another scanner you will have to make sure it is not the default sscanner in its software settings

Hp scanjet 8250. I want to set my scanner to default to PDF when I am trying to email. That is the way we do most of our scanning and right now it defaults to RTF.


Have you considered simply scanning from within Adobe Acrobat or similar software that produces .pdf and then use the email feature within Acrobat?

As I look over the HP User Manual, I can't see any method to set the default output. It simply says...

Use the E-MAIL button() to scan documents or pictures and insert them in an e-mail message as an attachment. You must have an Internet connection and a supported e-mail application.
1. Place the original face down on the scanner glass or face up in the ADF. If you are scanning two-sided originals from an ADF, slide the DUPLEX switch to two-sided mode.
2.Press the E-MAIL button().A message appears asking if the original is a document or a picture.
3.Select Document or Picture, and click OK.Note:A preview image will not appear when scanning from the ADF. To change this preview setting, see the HP Photo & Imaging software Help.
4. Select the final scan area (the area inside the dotted lines) in the preview image.
5. Make adjustments to the preview image if needed.
6. Click Accept.The final scan area is scanned and your e-mail application is opened. The scanned image is added as an attachment to the e-mail message.
7. The Save As dialog box appears. Type a file name and choose a file type, and click OK.
8. Complete the e-mail as usual.

HP scanner default email is Outlook Express I use Gmail


Gmail is an e-mail service, not a client (program used to access e-mail). In order to make thie work with gmail, you would need to install a different e-mail client that supports gmail, such as IncrediMail.

Automatic Cropping...


Before turning off the autocrop feature, reset the software to the default setting. Then turn off the autocrop feature. Some scanning software need to be reset to the original default condition and accept software switches only then!
