If you successfully installed the scanner driver and configure correctly the scanner.

Just press the scanner button on the scanner machine or printer, You can choose some options like SCAN TO EMAIL- it will open a blank email and it already attached to the new compose email.
SCAN TO FILE-it will save the file in the picture files of your computer. SCAN TO PDF-it will scan as pdf file and save the file to a destination file.SCAN to OCR-it is the same with scan to SCAN TO FILE. Choose which one you prefer or use the scanner icon on your computer to scan documents.

I hope it helps you. Regards

If your scan button does not work on printer,is there a key on your keyboard to push?

Some keyboards offer short cuts that can vary, but it would still have to be configured before it would work. I think I know why you have asked this question, and where your trying to go with this so let me cut to the chase and see if I can help you get your scanner to work. OK?

When you buy an all in one machine (which is a printer that has other options like fax or scan) and connect it to your pc, you can control the features from both sources. That means that you can push the button to scan on the printer to get it to work, or choose the scan option in the software installed on the pc to do the same thing.

How do you use the "scan" function?

If you want to scan by pushing the button on the printer, you need to configure the options in the printers menu that tell it what to do and where to send the image before it will work.

If you want to scan by clicking on a button shown on your computer screen, then you need to install the printers software to configure the options and make it work.

So which one do you want to do?

I can walk you through configuring the scan options on your printer or help you locate the software to install on your pc and explain how to use it to scan.

Regardless of the choice above, you will need the printers drivers installed and the software too. So first question would be, do you have the software and is it installed? Is the printer connected to your pc and does it work alread? Do you have the drivers/software already? Do you need them? If so, go to Dell's website and download them and install them to your computer (disconnect the printer from the pc first and dont reconnect it until told to do so during the installation) and let me know if and when your ready to continue and we will make this work ok?

Hi, I have a lexmark all in one printer x83. I also have a toshiba l300 series laptop. I want to know if my laptop is compatible to hooked up to my printer.

How does the printer connect to the PC, via USB?

If it is a USB connected printer then physically the printer will connect.

However, the real question is whether or not the X83 has a driver for the operating system that is on your laptop. Since you did not tell us the OS, I'm dead in the water until you do.

In order to use the scan features, (SCAN button on the panel), optional scan kit is needed. If your MFP is come with printer kit, u can scan using "store to E-filling". Install "File Downloader" software on your pc, and u can connect to the E-Filling of the MFP and download the scanned docs.
