Before scanning a document, make sure to install the support drivers located on the Support CD. Once the drivers are installed, connect the device to your computer and lift the cover of the device. Place a document on the printer then you can either press the scan button or use the HP software directly from the Start menu > All programs > HP Software to initiate the scan. When the scan is finished, you have the possibility to save the document as you want it.

If you want the document saved and recognized as a Word file, you need an OCR software. In this case, ABBYY Finereader is an excellent choice.
