Question about Brother MFC 7840W Printer
Hey I just got the Brother MFC-7840W Printer/Scanner/Faxer and I am clueless as to how to get it to scan? Nothing was said in the setup and the user's guide is dedicated solely to how to Print and Fax. Nothing on Scanning! HEEEEEEELP!!!!
Hi, normally, if you have installed the complete driver set, the easiest way is to run a program with scanning capability i.e. photoshop, or word. the software normally given with a scanner is a 'twain' which becomes linked to the photoshop program. If you have MS word (I'll use this as an exAmple ), ensure the scanner software is installed, the brother switched on and connected to the computer correctly click Insert select picture then scanner - (or it may say twain). At this point the Brother mini program - the 'twain' should start and then follow the scanner instructions and a scan of whAtever you have selected should be inserted into the word document. Bit of trivia - TWAIN stands for Tool With An Interesting Name - yup it really is!.
