1. Double Click on HP director to start it up. Look for "HP Director" on your desktop (the screen in front of you). It is usually an icon that materializes after you install your printer. (It may look slightly different with different models.

2. Scan the document by clicking "Scan."

3. Select "Save to File." (You can set up a folder ahead of time so you know where to find the document or photos once they are scanned). Often times the computermag-glass_10x10.gif will create a default "scanned documents" folder and organize them by saving them on the date scanned.

4.Click scan and then wait for box to appear.

The software will prompt you to save the file. Put it in the folder you created (you can see the path/folder). Give it a name you will remember.

Then click "Save"to finalize it. The document should be in the folder that you designated.

Hope this helps

I can't scan

When scanning documents on my MFC 7420, this is what I do. Place document on th scanner bed and don't press any buttons, leave it whatever mode it is in. Go to the computer and click on start> program files> scansoft paperport> open paperport se. When paperport is open click on the scan icon in the upper left corner. A dialog box on the left hand side will ask what you want to scan a picture or document. Select accordingly and press the scan icon.
A new window will pop up and ask what you want to scan and the size. You can either select pre scan or scan. The computer then will send a scan request to the scanner. When it is done scanning close the second window that popped up and the document that you just scanned will be there with a red box around it. Click on the document and it will open, then you can edit and save as needed.
Happy scanning
