Cannot view document on screen after scanning

First look at the settings within the scanner and see if you can save it directly to the program of your choice. You may have to browse to find an appropriate program. Saving documents and pictures directly to your desktop helps to find it more easily. When you find the photo or document you have scanned, Right Click, Open With, and select a program like Windows Photo Viewer or Windows Photo Gallery. In that same window, check the option near the bottom that says Always Open With

Won't scan

I had this problem, but I have Windows Vista. Epson finally addressed this problem. If you have Vista - and you cannot scan with the Canon MP460...just go to Epson's website, and go to troubleshooting. There you will find an upgrade that is necessary - it's the 'Service Pack 1'. Download it to your computer...and you will be able to scan immediately.

Computer illiterate needs help on how to scan documents from canon/serial#jcyb25729 pixma mp460 into windows/vista software

All you need to do is go into Navigator and select photo/document, this will take you to a screen where you can select photo/document etc. Then select resolution (the higher the dpi the better the quality, but slows down scanning). Follow the instructions. When scan is complete a small picture will appear, and a dialogue box asking if you wish to scan again, if you do put a new document on the cover and press scan. If it doesn't look right ignore the picture and rescan. When done exit at the dialogue box. The small pictures can be selected and edited or turned around using the icons. You can save one image at a time just by selecting the image and not the others. If you want to make a PDF, then select the images in the order you want the pages to appear in and save as a PDF.

I have a PIXMA MP460 Cannon Printer. The printer works and I can also copy but I can not scan documents to my PC. Any suggestions?

Try re-installing it again. You may have not installed the application software for scanning if you did a Custom Install.
