How to scan photos or documents with MFP to a computer with Windows 10
Often, situations often occur when the user needs to scan any documents, but an incomplete driver set for a multifunction device is installed on the computer, in which case you can easily use the scan function through the Start menu.
For Windows 10.
With the right mouse button on the desktop, in the window that appears, select "Personalization",
In the window that opens, click "Home", in the next window "Devices",
Then in the menu on the left, select "Printers and Scanners",
In a new window, we will see the connected printer, click on the printer - "Office".
We will be asked to select Parameters to use MFP functions, click on the arrow next to the model of our MFP, in the drop-down list, select the scanner (model of our MFP), click on the "Open scanner" button, the scanner window will appear.
Here you can select the type of file that we get at the output. As a rule, everything is scanned in JPEG, this is a universal format. Documents can be scanned in PDF.
At the bottom of the window there is a button - "View" - by pressing it, you can see how the scanned file will look like.
If you are ready to start scanning, click the Scan button, which is located at the bottom, next to the View button.
ОIf, after scanning, we need a file on the desktop, press the "View" button, in the window that opens, in the upper right corner you press three points in the upcoming menu, and select "Copy" in the drop-down menu, then right-click on the desktop - " Insert. "
A waste method to maintain confidential written documents, contracts and wills - to store them in digital form. This manual shows how to scan the document in Windows 10 without installing third-party tools.
As a rule, you can scan the document using the software provided by manufacturers. Printers and scanners are usually supplied with an optical disk containing the necessary drivers and tools. Manufacturers also provide their drivers and online tools if there is no optical drive on your PC.
This guide uses two "native" tools in Windows: Windows scanner and faxes and scanning.
Of course, the default software is used by your manufacturer's software configured for your specific scanner. However, if you do not want, third-party tools are installed on your computer, you should use two Microsoft solutions.
Are your scanner compatible with Windows 10
Before moving on, we need to make a couple of comments. First, the manufacturer of your scanner can provide drivers for Windows 10, but the device itself may not support the platform.
For example, the Universal Canon Pixma MG3520 printer with a built-in scanner. "Recommended" drivers are dated July 2015, although Canon has released a new package six months later. This is still three-year software.
However, a part of the AIO scanner of this printer will not be displayed in the native Windows tools, but will work correctly - in fact using a wireless connection - through the Canon software.
If you encounter such problems, you can have an older printer or scanner, which is not fully compatible with Windows 10. The device may also require a direct USB connection if it is used outside of the third-party manufacturer's tools. For AIO printers, you may need to configure its network settings so that your computer from Windows 10 recognize the scanner component in addition to the common printer unit.
This tool is a visual update for the older version of the fax and scanning program. It provides most of the same functions, depending on your printer, but does not contain fax and email components.
Go to Microsoft Application Store and install Windows Scanner (for free) and press the Blue "Get" button. After installing on your computer, click the Run button in the pop-up notification in Windows 10.
You can also access the new Scanner application - from the Start menu.
With an open application, your scanner should appear in the list on the left. You will also see the "File Type" option with the link "More". Click this link to view the full menu of the scanner application.
With the "Color Mode" you can scan documents in full color mode, in shades of gray or in black and white colors. Meanwhile, the "Resolution (DPI) setting" allows you to switch to various DPIs.
Setting the "File Type" Provides four parameters: JPEG, PNG, TIFF and BITMAP. JPEG and TIFF formats usually offer high-quality results, although TIFF files also support transparent background. PNG files are ideal for publishing on the Internet, and BMP files are untreated, uncompressed images.
Finally, you will see the "End Folder" option. By default, it is configured to "scans" and places scanned documents to the "Scan" folder located in the Image folder. The right way:
Click on the "Scan" link, and "Explorer" will appear. Here you can create a new folder or select the current location and click the "Folder" button.
When you are ready for scanning, insert the document into the feeder or lift the scanner cover. For the latter, place the document on the glass face down and close the lid.
You can click "View" to test scan and make adjustments if necessary before completing the Scan button.
Faxes and scanning
This program first appeared in Windows Vista. Unlike a new Microsoft application for scanning, this version provides additional parameters, such as an embedded tool to send scan by email, so you do not need to look for a file through the mail application, browser or third-party mail client.
You can find the program "Faxes and Scanning" located in the Start folder.
After the application is open, click "New Scanning" on the toolbar.
In the "New Scanning" pop-up window, make sure that the default scanner is installed in the program. If not, click the Edit button.
Then select scan profile. As an option, click the "Add Profile" selection in the list to create a custom profile for reuse.
Select the source of your scanner. There may be only one option "Tablet". If you have a printer AIO, in which there is a feeder, you can see two additional options: "Feed device (scanning on one side)" and "feeder (scanning on both sides)".
If your printer or scanner supports the feeder, and you have selected this option, you will see the setting for the paper target format. Click on the setting, and a long list of dimensions will appear.
Then select your color format (color, shades of gray or black and white), and then the type of file (BMP, JPG, PNG or TIF) and permission.
To resolve the default value of 200, but you can manually increase or decrease the number of points in which the printer places each inch. As a rule, the higher the number, the better the resolution. However, if you scan a poor-quality document, the increase in permission will not help.
Finally, adjust the brightness and contrast, respectively.
When you finish, click the "View" button to see the results. If the pre-scanning looks great, click the Scan button. If not, change the settings and press the "View" button again for another test. Click the Scan button when you are satisfied with the settings.This instruction will prompt you how to scan in Windows 10 or 7 correctly. But before that, you first need to add equipment to a computer or laptop, install drivers and only then to scan documents or photos from your printer (MFP). The process itself is performed through special programs for such purposes. It can be: Application "Scanner" in the 10th version of OS from Microsoft (you can download for free from "store"), the built-in service "Faxes and scanning" or a branded "master work" from the company's manufacturer's company.

Some users after installation is difficult to find a scanner on a PC or create a program shortcut, and someone even run to scan something. Tell in detail how to get out of such a situation. Describing if the system does not see the device, it does not work or does not open. But there is also a solution to the problems of such a plan.
- Faxes and Scanning in Windows 7
- Without taking into account the version of its operating system, the first thing before starting work with the scanner you need to check its connection and efficiency. Through the "Management" shortcut in the context menu "My PC" or in any other way, go to the Device Manager. In the "Image Processing Devices" section, find your model of technology. There should be no no exclamation signs near her.
- Now use the "Start" button, and then search or go to the control panel. Your task is to find the "Fax and Scan" application in Windows 10 or 7. How it will have a particular influence does not have.
- A window should be opened in which you can see which faxes were previously sent or accepted, or previously scanned documents. In the top menu, locate the "New" button. Press it to start scanning.
- Now the window has the ability to make individual document digitization settings. If necessary, set the desired values. At a minimum you need to specify: File type (Figure, PDF, DOCX or other), resolution (this is the quality that can be in the range from 100 to 1200 dpi), brightness. This will get better work of the scanner. Pay attention to the specified scanner model in the upper line on the left. And also if the device supports scanning at once from both sides, then you need to specify in the "Feed" section.
When settings are made, but you can leave everything by default, we recommend that you preview the future result. If it is satisfactory, then go directly to scan.
- Previously, the specified scan parameters can be saved to a separate profile not to configure again.
Depending on the quality of the work, it is performed by a device from several to 20-30 seconds. The result will be saved to the default folder. You can learn its address in the settings. Often it is located in My Documents.
How to scan the document on windows 10
Before starting all the procedures, it is worth finding out some of the important points of compatibility. As practice shows, even if there are drivers downloaded on the manufacturer's website, Windows 10 can conflict with equipment. So, for example, Canon MFP recommend using an older sample software. It is noted as recommended. Therefore, the scanner in Windows 10 can not work completely correctly. It should be ready for such developments.
If the device is old, then the drivers may not exist at all. And also often observed problems with scanning over the network from the "Dozens". The OS simply sees them. Therefore, a direct connection is required through a USB wire, although this is not a guarantee of correct operation.
If earlier your MFPs you only used as a printer, and now we try to scan the document on it, make sure the drivers are installed not only to print, but also on the scanner. For many models, these are different file packages.
- Connecting the scanner to a computer is reduced to "binding" a USB with a wire and installation of drivers. The latter can be copied to the Windows 7 system, and even more than 10, automatically. But if the scanner is old, then the OS identifies such equipment as unidentified. In this case, the necessary "wood" files will have to download from the manufacturer's website. Then everything comes down to such simple steps:
- Connect the scanner with a computer.
- We are waiting for an automatic installation.
- If everything went well, you begin to scan. Otherwise, go to the following items.
- Download the driver.
Install and reboot the system.
Programs for work
- "MASTER" from the manufacturer of technology
- Through the Toolbar, go to the "Printers and Faxes" section. Find your scanner model and highlight it.
- Right-click on the context menu, and among the list, check "Start Scanning". The system will start the built-in brand utility. Such .
- or such a type
In this window, you can configure the scan type, paper size, color or black and white scanning. And also set which format to save the result, specify the resolution, brightness and contrast. After clicking on view, you will see a preview.
This is a built-in tool that is an enhanced and visually to another option of the old utility "Faxes and Scanning". And in terms of opportunities, the tool has lost footers to work with faxes and sending scans by email.
To use the tool, you first need to download and install from the Microsoft Application Store. Despite the name - it is free. Possible option that the application is already installed on the PC. Find it through the Windows search string. The program icon has this kind.
Click on it to run.
When the application opens its window, then you will see the scanner model on the left. It can be changed if necessary. Below is the type of file to which the scan result will be saved. In addition to "PNG" are available to the selection of JPEG, TIFF and BITMAP. It all depends on the objectives and further use of digitized documents.
- On the "More" label, open the rest of the settings. Among them:
- Scanning mode in colors for photos or black and white for documents and text.
- The resolution in DPI is essentially an indication of the quality of the scanned results.
Setting "End Folder" Allows you to specify a place on the computer's disk, where digital copies will be saved. By default, this is the "scan" directory in the Documents folder. And the full path to her such "C: \ Users \ user name \ Pictures \ scans". Quick access is carried out through the conductor. If necessary, you can specify any other folder on the disk.
When all the desired settings are made can be started directly to the scan. Take sheets different scanners can be one or several ways. It can be an automatic document feeder or a cover with glass. With the second version of 100%, laying the paper is a filled side down. The lid be sure to close. With automatic feed, most likely, but it all depends on the specific model.
To preview the result, use the "View" button, and to get the finished scan - scan.
If the scanner does not work
First of all, if any problems occur in the work of any equipment, whether it is a printer or scanner, it is worth using full-time elimination capabilities. Go to the section with devices and find a problem. Call the context menu, click on the "Troubleshooting" item.
We are waiting for the end of the utility.
Manual equipment equipment
- If the scanner is not at all among the equipment in the appropriate section, it is worth trying to add it to manually. For this:
- Through the "Start" path - "Parameters" - "Devices" go to the "Printers and Scanners" section.
- Now, to add a new technique to press the "Plus" button.
- Click on the label "The required printer is missing in the list".
- Further, at the end, select the option "The printer has a big age" or "My printer is very old."
Mention "Printer" Unimportant.
But also the problem may arise due to the automatic installation of the built-in software to scan from the manufacturer together with the drivers. In this case, it should be removed (if possible). Or you can disable the standard Windows operating system utility. You can perform anything else through the "Programs and Components" snap. It is in the "control panel".
Application from the scanner Find in the list on the right, and then click the Delete button. For the built-in Windows, use the inclusion and disconnection of the components. Label on the left.
Find the section "Document Print Services", and in it "Faxes and Windows Scan". And opposite it, remove the tick. After restarting the computer so that the changes take effect.

Often emerging problems and their solution
Sometimes scanning is not supported in Windows 10, since the PC does not find a scanner.
- This occurs for various reasons:
- The scanner is in compatibility mode. To prevent the problem, you need to click on the device icon and go to "Properties" in the menu list. In the Compatibility tab, make the inscription "Run this program in compatibility mode", click on "OK";
- Problems with Windows services. In this case, you must start the "Run" dialog box: at the same time click on "Windows Key and R". Enter "Services.msc" in the field and click on "OK". Next, you need to find the "Windows Image Acquisition" service. Press it, and then - on the "properties". In the "Startup Type" section, set the "Automatically" mode, and in the "Service Status" section "Works". The endpoint comparable, the DCOM Server process launch panel, a remote procedure call and the shell hardware detection is also installed in automatic mode. Click on "Apply". Ready;
After installing new Windows 10 drivers, the scanner does not find. This error is solved. The above was described how to update the drivers if they or the device itself are outdated. Sometimes the PC still does not find a scanner. Then you need to connect the device to the computer and go to the conductor. Click on the Troubleshooting button and follow utility prompts.

Go to it and click on the "Add Printer or Scanner" button. Next, choose the item "My printer is already quite a big age ..." and tap on "Next". After a while, the connection will occur.
- Scan can be corrected and modified. Mostly do it with images. Main settings:
- The last parameter is also called DPI. What he is higher, the brighter and more clearly the scan. Resolution values:
- 100-200 DPI - Low quality;
- 300-400 DPI - average quality, suitable for text documents;
In the second case, the scanner must be connected to the network or devices connected to the Internet. How to add it to the network, you can read in the manual for it. You need to turn on the device, then the computer will find it automatically. If it does not work so much, you can do it manually, as in the first version. 500-600 DPI - high quality, ideal for images: scanning passports, detailed documents.
The higher the resolution, the slower the scanning occurs.
In the Scanner Settings section, the necessary parameters are set. First specifies the type of document: text or image. Next, brightness, contrast and resolution are configured.

If there is a question how to make a good scan on Windows 10, you don't have to spend a lot of time to search for an answer. The program embedded in the computer is great for scanning, if there is no need for high-quality scanning processing. Wizards, which are already downloaded, are indispensable in professional work with scanned materials. Some of them allow you to connect several scanners to the PC.
The current presentation of information materials, recently, is mainly expressed in a digital format, which allows you immediately, with the appropriate need to receive direct access to any documents or files, instantly process, and also fully interact with a significant amount of diverse data. In many ways, this option for submission of information contributed to the creation, distribution and high popularization, expressed in mass presentation and application in a wide variety of areas of users, modern personal computer devices, which made it possible to make the process of using information resources much easier and more convenient.
However, the large amount of various types of information materials, especially important, confidential, personal and closed documents, such as the forms of strict reporting, contracts and trade agreements, testaments and other samples are presented in print form. And one of the best ways to maintain such types of documents, with the ability to produce a diverse list of sought-after actions (print, exchange, forward, if necessary, etc.) is to translate them into a digital format and store on a computer device or connected storage outer carrier. Transferring printed documents to a custom computer device is possible in different ways, one of which is the scanning process. And then in this manual we will show how to scan the document in the operating system "Windows 10"
without installing third-party tools. As a rule, users can scan the document using the software provided by the manufacturers of the appropriate devices. Printers and scanners are usually supplied together with an optical disk that contains all the necessary drivers and tools. Manufacturers also provide access to drivers for their devices and in-demand tools through remote access on the official support website. "The Internet"
If the user computer is not equipped with an optical drive to read the corresponding disks. For example, in this manual, the format printer is used as an example. ("all in one" "AIO" or ) "All-in-one" "CANON PIXMA MP280"
. In addition to the drivers, the software package from the manufacturer sets various additional tools that allow you to expand the range of possible application of the device that are suitable directly to this model. But since different manufacturers do not provide identical software packages for all printers and scanners, then in this manual, instead of the device proposed by manufacturers, we use two "Relatives" Tools of the operating system "Windows" developed by corporate specialists : "Microsoft" и "Windows SCAN" .
"Faxes and scanning" developed by corporate specialists Of course, always by default it is preferable to use the software manufacturer software prepared directly for this particular scanner. However, if users do not want to additionally install third-party tools on their computer device, then two solutions presented from
will be an excellent alternative, and must fully provide an error-free scanning process. Transferring printed documents to a custom computer device is possible in different ways, one of which is the scanning process. And then in this manual we will show how to scan the document in the operating system ?
Whether the scanner used is compatible with Transferring printed documents to a custom computer device is possible in different ways, one of which is the scanning process. And then in this manual we will show how to scan the document in the operating system Before proceeding to the direct review of the document scanning process, it is necessary to note and clarify several important points. First, the manufacturer of the user scanner can, together with the device, supply the appropriate drivers, for its full operation running the operating system
However, the device itself may not support this software platform. developed by corporate specialists For example, we tested offered by , Tools on one of the early printer options "CANON PIXMA" For example, in this manual, the format printer is used as an example. format with built-in scanner. "Recommended" Drivers for the successful functioning of the device are dated July 2015, although the developers "Canon"
Released a new updated package six months later. But it is still four-year software. Transferring printed documents to a custom computer device is possible in different ways, one of which is the scanning process. And then in this manual we will show how to scan the document in the operating system As a result of the use of the device on the modern version Tools of the operating system Part of the toolkit responsible for scanning this multifunctional device was not displayed in native means Drivers for the successful functioning of the device are dated July 2015, although the developers , however, operated properly in the software provided Transferring printed documents to a custom computer device is possible in different ways, one of which is the scanning process. And then in this manual we will show how to scan the document in the operating system .

However, in order to protect their devices from the possible development of errors and a potential conflict of software environments, it is enough to use applications
, internal functional of which is more than enough to successfully execute the claimed scanning process. Full version of the article with all the additional video lessons, see the source:
Scanning is the transfer of information from the real physical media to the electronic file (photo, PDF document and other formats). Scan in Windows 10 or earlier versions of the operating system, such as Windows 7 and even XP, can be standard. Additionally, office equipment manufacturers offer branded software that is installed with drivers. Inside the software there are always utilities for scanning where you can configure many parameters - the quality of the scan (resolution), the format of the end file of the scan, choose a shade (color or black and white).
You can scan from the printer to the computer if you are the owner of a multifunctional device (MFP, 3 in 1), or from a separate scanner, which is intended for creating scan copies. The technology is almost always the same and is done in several clicks of the mouse.
Scanning Option for All Windows
The easiest and most work way to make a document scan in Windows 7-10 is the use of a standard wizard with a scanner.
Before starting the scanner or MFP, one of the possible methods supported by the technique (USB, Wi-Fi) must be connected, and is installed / added to Windows.
A few words about connecting the scanner / printer and installation. Connect the equipment and the computer in any convenient way. Most easily combined a USB cord, which was included with the appliance. If there is no cord, you can buy it in any computer store or order on the Internet. Next, turn on the printer through the power cable to the network. Click on the power button, which is on the device body. After, Windows must detect the device. Perhaps the automatic installation of drivers will begin. Otherwise, insert a CD into a laptop drive or stationary computer, start the installation file and step by step. Make the installation "Fires". Now the technique is ready for scanning and other supported operations (printing, copying).
- How to scan:
- Raise the scanner cover and put the carrier with the face filled down, focusing on the device guide in the corner;
- Open the "Devices and Printers" window (Press the Windows + R keys simultaneously, run the "Control Printers" command);
- In the list of equipment, find the desired device and make sure that the technique is ready for operation;
- Right click, from the context menu, select "Start Scanning";
- A window will open, where you can optionally set the scan parameters (chromaticity, resolution, scanned document format). The window may differ in the interface, it all depends on the manufacturer and model of technology;
- If necessary, make a preview of the scan to make sure the location of the sheet;
- Click on "Scan", the printer will start creating an electronic copy of the document;
After graduating from digitization, it will be proposed to save the document with the necessary name.
The finished scan will be located in the Windows "Image" system folder. Inside the folder is automatically created, where the scan-copy is located. Opens by any application that can process the scan format.
If the scan was saved in the image format, then the opening will automatically be done through the standard photo viewer. To open PDF and other formats, a special software will be required, such as Adobe PDF Reader.
At the settings stage, an important parameter is the resolution (DPI), which is measured in the number of points per inch. The greater the indicator, the higher the quality, but also the size of the destination file may increase several times. The maximum resolution is recommended to choose for documents (passports, birth certificates) and carriers with a plurality of small elements (email and other). This will allow you to repeatedly increase the scan in size without loss of quality to see all the details on the image.
- Paint is a standard graphic editor that is present in any version of Windows. In XP, you can open the editor through the "Start" folder in the Standard Programs folder. In Windows 8-10 it is easier to use the search. Start entering "Paint" in the search, the system to offer the desired option.

Sooner or later, too old models of printers are no longer supported. Drivers are not updated under modern Windows requirements. In this case, scan at all will not work. The only option is to connect the machine to the computer on which the system is installed on which drivers are installed. Issues are possible with scanning and on the local network. When multiple PCs are connected to one network and the scanner is used in the quality of the general device for all computers, then secondary computers may not recognize the device.
In this case, you must temporarily connect the scanner to the main computer and make scanning.
In most cases, one common driver is used to install the MFP. During the unpacking of the program, all the driver packages needed to work for all the techniques (scanner, xerox, printer) are installed. But sometimes it is necessary to put separate drivers for each mechanism. Therefore, if there is not one installation file on the disk or several disks are provided at all, it is recommended to install the entire software package. There are cases when a person installs firewood, the printer works, but the scanner and the copy function is not available. Know the problem can be just in it.
