Usually, the scanner software will ask you where to save a file after the scan.
It will often name the item automatically and save it to your MY DOCUMENTS or MY PICTURES folder.
I find that its best to rename the file and select the NEW FOLDER icon.
Type in a name for the folder that you wont forget like "Baby Pix" or "Vacation Pictures" and save it there.
The reason for this is that if for some reason if it doesn't save to the MY DOCUMENTS folder and you forget where you put it, you can do a general search of your computer and find it. As its unlikely that there will be any other files/folders with that name.

Scanners use a method of interacting with applications called TWAIN. Go into the application you want the picture and insert from twain source. It'll scan and load the image. Your scanner probably came with a software for loading and saving images, but if you haven't got one...IRFANVIEW is free.

Does this printer scanner scan to save to the computer and if it does how do I do that.


What OS are you using? How is the all-in-one connected to your computer. To scan to the computer, you need to install the full software package (if it is available for your OS). If only the OS drivers are available, you will be able to save scans. However, you can only initiate the scan from your computer. Additionally, if you have the all-in-one connected to a print server (or router USB port), the scan features will not work. (The scanner requires two-way communication with the computer and can fail if you use a USB hub, bad cable, or a long cable. Thus try a new cable of less than 6' in length if you can't launch a scan from the computer.)

Next: use the Canon software (MP Navigator EX) and initiate a scan. You will need to adjust some settings to make sure that the program knows what program to open when you press the scan to computer button. The monitoring software will need to be running to identify the button presses. To set this, select Preferences, then the Scanner Button settings tab. Select Actions and then choose Save to PC in the Event drop-down menu. Use the first scan to set the default scan preferences and destination folder. Then click OK to save the settings.

If you do not have the MP Navigator program, use any scanning program on your computer. For Windows 7 and 8, there is Windows Fax and Scan that can work with the MP252. The Apple Macintosh has a similar program. Third party software will also work (Nuance's PaperPort, for example).

See page 318 in the Advanced section of the manual (available from Canon) for screen captures of setting MP Navigator. http://www.canon-europe.com/Support/Consumer_Products/products/Fax__Multifunctionals/InkJet/PIXMA_MP_series/PIXMA_MP252.aspx?type=manuals .

I hope this helps.

I need a step by step guide to scanning a doc that i want to print please


  • hi follow the instructions
  • 1

    Clean the photo you want to scan. If you have canned air handy, blow dust and lint off the surface of the picture (not recommended for fragile photographs).

  • 2

    Fire up your computer and Multi-function printer. Check your connections and look the printer over, cleaning the scanning surface and the underside of the document lid.

  • 3

    Position the photograph face-down on the scanning surface. The alignment of your photo can be corrected in the editing process, but you can save yourself a step if you do this by hand, using the guides on the edges of the scanning area.

  • 4

    Shut the lid. Be careful to not disturb the picture's alignment when closing the lid.

  • 5

    Set the scan resolution. Increasing the dpi (dots per inch) count produces a clearer and sharper image and dramatically increases the file size.

  • 6

    Click the scan button on the software interface or push the button on the face of the printer. A preview of your scan should appear on your computer monitor.

  • 7

    Inspect the preview for any correctible flaws. If you need to start the scan over to fix something that went wrong, remember to label each scan of the same picture with a different name so you can sort through them quickly.

    Choose the best version and save it to your computer's hard drive

    Cant figure out how to scan something


    You can start scanning a document two dfferent ways--from the printer or from your computer. With either method, the first thing you need to do is place whatever you want to scan face down on the glass of the printer. Close the top cover.

    If you want to do everything from the printer, press the button with the diamond on it. "Save Photo" should appear on your computer. You can then choose a name for the file and a location where you want to save it.

    To proceed from the computer instead, you can start the Lexmark Imaging Studio. Click "Scan," select the Document option, and then click "Start."

    That should get you started!

    Hp 1350 printer will not scan.


    You need sofrware that captures the scan from the scanner. usually comes with the printer, you have to opemn the program and tell it to scan and save.

    Scanning by just placing a paper on the scanner and pressing the scan button just tells the printer to scan and probably print a copy, but it doesnt send it to the computer unless theres a program asking for it. Check the installation cd and go through the software that came with it.

    Lexmark X1185 won't scan.


    I believe you have to push the scan button in order for it to scan and save. The copy buttons will only print either a black copy or a color copy.
