Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
I want to know if I can upload something from my scanner to my Desk Top Computer. Help me please.
PLEASE READ **CAREFULLY
Do you want to scan in a document or a picture?
If it is a picture, go to your photo program. Under FILE choose IMPORT then SCAN or TWAIN or your actual scanner (if it shows there.) Have your photo in the scanner ready to go and click on the above. This will scan the picture into your program and you can do any adjustments or cropping needed and "save as" where you want in your files.
A document can be a little more tricky because sometimes your existing document program( Word or whatever doesnt match the document format. However, on many scanners you can choose which program you want to open the document. If your document program will not open it, you can choose" word pad" and once it is there you can save it as an rft document then try opening again in your document proggy. There are many workarounds here to convert documents that didn't come from your program, but with a little patience it can be accomplished.
**Now that I have given you this information, I'll ask you. Do you have the scanner driver installed on your PC? If you do not you won;t be abl;e to scan anything onto your PC, however, you can go to the manufacturers site, click on support or downloads and download the correct driver for your scanner and operating system to your desktop. Be sure to turn off all running programs while you download and install. Once it is on your desktop it will be an exe file. Just click on it to install. Your scanner will then work with your PC and you can scan whatever you want using your programs to do it-picture or document. Good Luck to You.
