  1. Editing a scanned PDF document


    I own a Microsoft Surface with the latest windows update (1903 I think). I used to be able to open a scanned document in Paint and edit it (this was primarily erasing unwanted content).

    I scanned a document today, and can find no way to edit it. Is there something I can install in my computer that would allow me to edit this and other documents? Thanks for your help.

    Windows Fax & Scan: How to Scan Documents to PDF format?


    Greetings all,

    In connection with my job, I have several insurance companies asking me to send scanned documents in Portable Document Format (PDF). My Brother Printer Control Center Fax-Scan software is not yet compatible with Windows10, even in Windows7 compatibility mode. The Windows10 Fax & Scan program does not list PDF as a scan-to file conversion option. Only jpeg, bitmap, txt, etc..

    Is there a way to tweak or add-on something to Windows Fax & Scan to make it scan documents into PDF format? Thank-you for any guidance with this.

    -Allen
