    Have now tried and succeeded to make an enlargement as per your instructions. A pity HP did not supply a manual with this machine. Thank's for your help.

By default, your printer is setup to automatically detect the size of your paper. But you can change that to print up to an 8.5x11 sheet.

So, let's say you have a 4x6 photo you want to make full size, 8.5x11, you must change the settings. Here's how:

You'll want to access the printer's "Print Settings" by scrollong through the menu. Once there you'll scroll up or down to find The Print Layout screen. From there just choose the layout you want and that's it. You'll have to change it back to automatic to set things back to normal.

I work with these printers everyday, but here is a direct link to the manual from HP's website:

How do I scan and save to my computer

Dear Sir,

plz follow this step to solved your problem,

Turn on your all-in-one printer and computer. Check the connections between the two machines.
  • Step 2 Lift the printer's document lid. Examine the scanning surface and the underside of the lid for dust and fingerprints.
  • Step 3 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.
  • Step 4 Close the printer's document lid slowly so the document does not shift position.
  • Step 5 Select a scan resolution. The higher the dpi (dots per inch) count, the sharper and more detailed the image.
  • Step 6 Push the scan button. You may have to do this on the printer itself or on your computer.
  • Step 7 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.
  • Step 8 Edit the image as it appears on your computer if you want to make changes. Your scanning softwaremag-glass_10x10.gif might let you enlarge, resize or otherwise manipulate the final product.
  • Step 9 Accept the scan and save. Return the original document to a safe location.

  • Thanks For Your Time,

    You can download your manual here:

    You can scan to your pc if it is connected to your pc and the software/driver has been loaded.

    The pop3/smtp questions are for the address for your mail server (isp).
    It is most likely trying to connect though your pc's mail program (Outlook Express, etc) so if that i snot setup, you would have to set that up first.

    Memory card can be inserted into the printer for saving. You can get access to the memory card in My computer if the printer is connected correctly to your pc.

    Post back with any additional questions.
