Well in word you go to Top Menu, go to, INSERT, go down to INSERT PICTURE, it ask FROM... choose from Scanner, and then the native scanning window will come up, where you can do your scans. When you finish, it automatically saves it to that document, which you can then name & save. MSPaint has similar features. You see when you installed your driver it also installed, or should have, a TWAIN driver, this allows transfer across MS programs

How do you save an email destination when scanning on ricoh aficio mp 7000


Not quite sure what you mean .?
Make a Template From a Scanned Item
During the course of running a business or operating a home office, you might come across a hard-copy document that you wish to copy and customize to use in the future.
This can be accomplished in a matter of minutes, whether it's a professional looking invoice, fax cover sheet, or any other type of document.
There is no real technical expertise required to convert the scanned item into a reusable document.

Place the item you wish to convert in your scanner or all-in-one peripheral device.
Open the device's software interface by clicking its desktop icon.
Select "Scan" and then scan and save it as a ".doc" file or word processing file.
Open the scanned item using a word processing suite, such as Microsoft Word or Open Office. Review the scanned item to ensure all characters were properly rendered during the scan.

Save the file as an easy to remember name in the folder of your choosing.
Then press "Ctrl" and "A" simultaneously, followed by "Ctrl" and "S."
Open a new word document by going to "File" and "New."
In the new document, press "Ctrl" and "V."
This creates a workable, editable document while preserving the original.
Save the new document with a similar, easy to remember name.
Customize the content of the new document to your liking, inserting your particular information. For instance, if it is an invoice you've scanned and wish to emulate, then replace the other business' name and contact information with your own.
Save the document periodically to avoid losing information.
Copy an Email Folder to a Hard Drive
An email file is a file that comes in your email with important information or pictures in it.
When you get information in your email account, you might decide to transfer the information to your hard drive.
This is a process that is easy to do, and it is a good idea to do it, because scam artists or hackers can get into your email account and ruin or delete information.
You can also save an entire email folder, such as your Inbox or Sent folder, by saving or exporting it.
Saving an email folder to your hard drive is extremely easy.
Open your inbox and click on the message that contains the email folder.
Right-click on it and choose "Save As."

Choose a location on the hard drive of your computer and click "OK" to save the file in that location.
Choose a name for the folder so you'll remember what it is.

Choose "Save" to save the email folder.

Click on the headings for your email folders where messages are stored, such as your Inbox, your Sent folder and your personally named folders.
Right-click or double-click on the heading until you see a "Save Folder" option. Depending on your email program, you might be able to click "Save As" and save the folder as a document onto your computer.
If you do not have a "Save As" option, look in your "Tools," "Menu," "File Menu" or "Options" menu.
Choose "Export" and specify the particular folder you would like to save.
As "Export Destination," choose the place where you'd like the folder saved on your computer.
When you click "Export," it will be saved.

I am trying to scan documents and images into my computer and also email but apparently i can only choose from "scan and reprint" or "scan to memory card" options? Please help!!


If your HP Printer is connected to the computer it should be able to save the scanned images to your computer when you start the scanner using the scanner icon on your computer.
The the way is to save the images to your memory card and transfer them to your computer using a memory card reader, then you can email these images as a file attachment in your emails.

Hi, it all depends on the printer your using.

How to Scan a Document on a Multi-Function Printer

A multi-function printer with a scanner makes backing up your important documents easy. The scanner function of the printer allows you to translate a paper document like a receipt or title deed into an electronic copy that is stored on your computer. Once you have an electronic copy of your document, you can process and manipulate the document as you would any other electronic file. Follow these steps to scan a document on a multi-function printer:


Connect your multi-function printer and computer. Power them up.

Select the side of the document you are going to scan. Give the document a once-over, checking for any flaws that you do not want transferred into electronic form.

Open the printer's lid. Place the side of the document you want scanned face-down on the glass plate of your multi-function printer's scanning bed. Align the document to your satisfaction.

Close the printer's lid carefully. You may want to weigh the document down with another sheet of paper to prevent it from shifting.

Choose an appropriate scan resolution. You may have to do this using the controls of your printer or on the computer, depending on the model and software.

Press the scan button to start the process. This can be done on the printer itself or on the computer.

Preview the scan on your computer monitor. You should be able to make minor changes to the scanned image if needed.

Save the scanned image if you are satisfied with the result. Try again if you are not satisfied.



Tips & Warnings

Scanning documents at high resolution and low data compression will produce the best image quality at the cost of file size.

Not happy with a scan? Re-check the alignment of the document and try it again. Discard the duds when you get a scan that works for you.

Using harsh cleaning chemicals such as acetone or benzene can damage your multi-function printer. Abrasive cleaners are also not good on the machine, particularly the glass surface of the scanning bed.



....How to Scan a Document on an All-in-One Printer?

Scanning is a standard all-in-one printer feature that converts a hard-copy document into electronic information, which your computer can store and modify. You can scan legal files, office reports or just about any other kind of document and create an electronic backup for your files, send it as email or alter it to suit your needs. Follow these steps to scan a document on an all-in-one printer:

Turn on your all-in-one printer and computer. Check the connections between the two machines.

Lift the printer's document lid. Examine the scanning surface and the underside of the lid for dust and fingerprints.

Put the document you wish to scan face-down on the glass. Use the alignment markers to help you square up the object. These are usually found on the left-hand edge of the scanning area.

Close the printer's document lid slowly so the document does not shift position.

Select a scan resolution. The higher the dpi (dots per inch) count, the sharper and more detailed the image.

Push the scan button. You may have to do this on the printer itself or on your computer.

Check the preview of your scan on your computer. Depending on your all-in-one printer and software, you may have to prompt your computer to display the preview for you.

Edit the image as it appears on your computer if you want to make changes. Your scanning software might let you enlarge, resize or otherwise manipulate the final product.

Accept the scan and save. Return the original document to a safe location.

Hope it helps..

Problem using OCR with Canon MP610 all-in-one


I got this message too, before I installed an OCR program. It may be that you need to install one (or specify it, if you have one already). With my MP610, an installation disk was included that contained the OmniPage SE program for OCR. When I installed that on my computer, and told MP Navigator (another Canon-supplied program, that controls scanning) to use it as the "Open With" program for OCR, it worked.
