How do I name and save a scanned document in HP C4480 (Windows)?


Hello, Robert -

I hope I am correct in assuming you have the user's manual for the HP Photosmart C4480. Just in case you do not, this is the link to the web page where you can download and save the manual (PDF format - Adobe Acrobat Reader software needed, free):
https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-photosmart-c4400-all-in-one-printer-series/3655558/model/3655559/manuals

After downloading the PDF document save it (Save As) to your Documents folder and give it a name you can find again easily - maybe: HP Photosmart C4480 Manual.

How to save a PDF file:
- With your computer, open the PDF document in Adobe Acrobat Reader
- Move cursor to upper left corner of page and left click or tap on FILE
- In drop down File menu, move cursor to SAVE AS and left click or tap on it
- In Save As window which opens, move cursor down to CHOOSE A DIFFERENT FOLDER and left click on tap on that "button"
- In window which opens choose DOCUMENTS in the Documents Library
- In File name box near the bottom of the Documents Library pop-up window, enter the name with which you want to save the PDF document, Example: HP Photosmart C4480 Manual
- Left click or tap on the SAVE button

Note: The steps above will be similar to what you will need to do after scanning any document.

The instructions for scanning start in Chapter 10, Page 64 (Image 304 of the PDF format manual).

Open the scanner through your computer. It is easier to save the document later by operating the scan functions through your computer.

With the scan application open on your computer run the scan process. After scanning the document, you will need to save it. First, you will need to determine the format in which you want to save the scanned document: PDF, JPEG (photo image), GIF, etc.

After choosing the format for the scanned document, in the proper file name box, enter the name for the document you wish to save.
Examples:
Correspondence 2018-Feb-18 Brother
Photo Brothers-Family 2018-Feb-18
Deed of Sale 2018-Feb-18 House

Get the idea? I like to give a date to my scanned document names to help identify them better.

Once you have entered the file name, click or tap on the SAVE button.

Note: I always like to open the saved document from the Documents folder to verify it was saved. Plus, my scanner attaches a number at the end of every file name. After closing out the saved document and closing the scanner winder, I go back and Edit the file name, removing the added number (digits) from the saved file name.

The video you will find with this link:
http://esvideo.es/video/watch/ult2ORqN1eGRiLQ=
is for those who use Windows 8 or 10. Even if you use another Windows operating system (I use Windows 7), you can probably figure out what to do. The video goes through the scanning and saving process step-by-step.

Best wishes.

Windows 7 and HP scanjet 8250, 8200, 8270; front panel buttons and searchable...


How to install a HP scanjet 8250 in windows 7 with full features like double side scans and searchable PDF creator.

The basic driver automatically installs with windows 7.
The basic driver lets you scan one page at a time and does not let you do advanced options like double side and creating searchable PDF's.
HP has a software package listed for the HP 8270 scanjet that works properly with the 8250 scanner. I would assume that any scanner in the 8200 series would work with this software.
For full scanning features, I installed the HP photoshop essentials and the HP solution center. Find the download here, on HP's web site.... http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=1118286&prodTypeId=15179&prodSeriesId=1118292&swLang=8&taskId=135&swEnvOID=4062
Click on the software link .."HP scanjet Full Feature Software and Driver"
After the install run the setup and follow the directions,
After the install, the front panel buttons on the scanner should now work. You should also be able to create PDF's(searchable) with the one touch of the scanner button.

What is meant by PDF as used in scanning?


PDF is the format in which your scanned document will be saved at. In some cases you have options to save either as PDF, Jpeg depending on your scanner and the scanning software. Hope this helps!

Cannot save in pdf format after scanning thru hp g3010 scanner using win7 pro


Hi abdul_haq779,


This problem couldd be resolved by printing the format that you get via your scanner for e.g. jpeg into pdf , by using a free pdf printer tool.

Once you have an image scanned via your scanner , you can just print the image in pdf mode.

My hp laser jet 3052 cannot scan documents in pdf.It is only giving options to save either in jpeg, tif, bmg format. There is no pdf format.


You may need to purchase a scanner to get a PDF like Acrobat Reader. But if you managed to save to PDF before, try to reinstall the software and add software and choose OCR. Most of the HP PDF capablility is together with its OCR software.
