    Scanning a document


    I have placed a document in my scanner (MG5750 printer), and pressed the scan button. In the small screen on the printer, it says in a small oblong box 'Doc.type <Auto scan>, and at the bottom 'Scan, save, forward'. I pressed the 1st of the 3 buttons beneath the screen and it says 'Forward scanned data to a PC, then pressed OK = Select PC, and in an oblong box says Local (USB), and at the bottom 'Search again'. I cannot find the scan anywhere. What do I do now?

    Many thanks

    :)

  2. scanned documents

    Hello,

    By default, scans are saved in a Scans folder inside the Pictures. Here are the steps on how to get there:

    • Press Windows and type pictures
    • Click Pictures and double-click the Scans folder.

    Furthermore, we suggest that you repair your Word application by following the steps on this

    .

    Let us know how that turned out for you.
