Question about Canon PIXMA MP160 All-In-One InkJet Printer
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.

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).
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.
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.
Shut the lid. Be careful to not disturb the picture's alignment when closing the lid.
Set the scan resolution. Increasing the dpi (dots per inch) count produces a clearer and sharper image and dramatically increases the file size.
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.
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
