Place your document face down on the scanner bed. Press the button that starts the scanning process depending on your scanner or printer.
Save the scanned file to your computer by clicking "File" in the menu bar at the top of the screen, then choose "Save as." Choose the folder in which you wish to save the document from the drop-down menu in the window that popped up during the saving process. Choose a name for the document, then click "Save."
Sign on to your email account, then choose "New" or "Compose" to start a new email message. Click on "Attachments" or "Attach." Wait for a new window to pop up, then choose the file you scanned from the folder where you saved the document.
Wait a few seconds for the file to attach, compose your email message, then click "Send." Your scanned document will now be sent to the recipient's email address.

The best way to scan images to save on yourcomputer is to use the scanner software on the computer. Not the scan functionon the scanner. You don't say what type of scanner software you have but usually scannersoftware works this way: 1) Place photo on scanner 2) Open scanner software 3) Using the software, Initiate scan 4) Name the Scanned item and save it to your desired location/folder Note: some applications will automatically save to --My Documents--My Pictures 5) Repeat process for each pic to be scanned
Might need a bit more information about this: But I'm presuming you scan your document and save it as a pdf document using the built in HP software?
Couple of things to try:
1 - have you got the latest version of Adobe Reader? It may be that you are using an older version - the pdf document specification has been updated over the years and it may be that you're saving the pdf using a newer version of the pdf format than adobe reader is able to read.
2 - Adobe reader isn't the only pdf viewer, there are numerous other pdf document viewers (some free some not) You could try another pdf viewer, like Foxit Reader (free to use) and see if that can open it?
3 - When you save the scan, make sure that in the Save Dialog box it is really saving it as pdf. Common mistake is that people often just save a file with .pdf and expect the program to know that you want to save as pdf. When you scan there are several other file formats that you can use (Tiff, Jpeg etc) Is is possible you're saving the file as Tiff or Jpeg but with a .pdf file extension? If you're not sure, re-scan the document and resave it, but don't use a file extension, let the scanning program do that, see what it saves it as?
4 - check where you're saving the pdf on your computer? Is the place you're trying to open it from, the same as the place you've saved it?
Hello, you can a document using a scanner. 1. you have to find a SCANNER machine that is responsible in scanning the files you want to scan. 2. Then after you find a scanner, next thing to do is to place the document file in the scanner and make sure that your scanner is properly connected and turn on. 3. Click and run the software that is bundled with the scanner to scan the document and then you have to set the path where your scanned file is to be place. 4. Then after the scanning process finished then click the save button to save the scanned files.
The supplied Canon software is horrible, but it can be done!
Launch ScanGearStarter, choose advanced tab and click preferences button, then select scan tab. Untick box "Automatically quit ScanGear....." then click ok.
(This box being ticked totally prevents multipage single file scanning).
Now choose simple mode tab, select the document type, dpi and document size.
Now click the green "Multi Scan" button, place the document on the scanner glas and press next in the new window.
The page will be scanned and the ScanGear window will return, just click "Multi Scan" again and place next document, press next. Keep repeating until all pages are scanned, then close the ScanGear window.
This will bring up a third window showing thumbnails of each page, any of these pages can be deselected if required.
The other important step is to choose from the pull down list Saved as Type: "MultiPagePDF".
Choose the location for saving the file and click save. Hallelujah! .......stupid software.
you can try it by using the scanner option on the control panel. If you are using windows operating system, go on start menu, select control panel and double click scanners & cameras. Double click the scanner online and start scanning the documents. Save it in the format you want but it is usually default as jpeg.
scanned documents usually saved as .pdf file if you run the scan option directly on the printer. By pressing the SCAN button the printer. So do not use this option if you do not want the documents to be saved as pdf files.
