Scan, copy, print, fax, and other functions are all available on HP printers. Almost any sort of 2D image, including photos and drawings, can be read by scanners. Once the image has been scanned, you can transfer it straight to your computer's desktop or another location. The buttons for scanning are the same on most HP printers, so it doesn't really matter which model you have. The HP software CD must first be installed on your computer.

Install the HP software that was included with your printer.

Step 1. Open the program on your computer if it has already been installed.

Step 2. Place the file you wish to scan face down on the glass scanner. Ensure that the paper's edges touch the sides that have arrows pointing towards them.

Step 3: On the software application, choose the wrench-shaped logo. This button is for "Settings."

Step 4: Select the file type to be scanned (i.e., picture or document).

Step 5: Select "Scan Document" or "Scan Picture."

Step 6: Hold off until the printer has completed scanning. You'll be prompted by the HP software to choose a location to save your document. On your computer, select a place and press "OK." 

You can scan photos or documents with the Canon PIXMA MP240 multifunction printer and save the images as files on your computer or a memory card. By pushing a single button on the control panel, you can use this feature of the printer to make the procedure user-friendly. Use your Canon PIXMA MP240 to scan a document or photo so that you can save it digitally, email it to a friend, or modify it using photo-editing software.

Step 1. On power on the PIXMA MP240, press the "Power" button located to the left of the LED display.

Step 2. Open the top of the PIXMA MP240 by lifting the plastic document cover to reveal the flatbed scanner.

Step 3. Place the document face-down on the glass scanner bed and move it so that the arrow icon is aligned with the back-left corner of the bed.

Step 4. Close the PIXMA MP240 by lowering the document cover.

Step 5. Press the "Scan" button on the PIXMA MP240 control panel's right side, which is located above the "Stop" button. By doing this, the document is scanned and sent to your computer's Canon MP Navigator software where you can edit the image and save it as a file.

You may scan, edit, print, and email photos with Hewlett-Photosmart Packard's Essential scanning program. The software can be downloaded for free from the HP website and is included with HP scanners.
