    Should I shut down my computer to plug in my scanner? I tend to do it to protect both items and historically, powering up the scanner 'with' the computer avoided twain error but I'm wondering if it's still necessary since I have to unplug my scanner and so therefore shut down several times a day to take my laptop somewhere.It would be so much better if I could just unplug it and plug it in like I do with my mouse without closing all my tabs etc. to shut down but I'm worried about causing damage to hardware or memory.Scanner; Cannon LIDE220Laptop Model: ProBook 450 G7Product ID: 9UQ56PA#ABGCh

  2. Scanner

    Hi JSmith,

    Your scanner should be installed first in order for your computer to recognize it. Since you're using a printer/scanner in one, you need to add or install the device as a printer and as a scanner. Make sure that the printer is properly connected to your
    computer and is turned on when you try to install it. Follow these steps:

    • Click Start > Settings > Devices.
    • Under Add printers & scanners, click the + sign and select
      Add device.

    Once added, try checking if you're able to scan. If your computer still doesn't detect the scanner, then we suggest that you get in touch with HP Support for further assistance.

    Feel free to let us know if you need more information.

    Regards.

    Should I shut down my computer every time I plug in my scanner?

    about plug-in or plug-out with AC adapter

    I have done all of the above and when I plug my computer in with a fully charged battery the screen still goes black - I am on Windows 10 and my computer is 3 days old - HP Pavillion Laptop - I know there has got to be an easy answer for this Problem - Like
    a setting somewhere, but I am used to using my computer plugged in at all times and I think that it is stupid that I have to take out the battery to do this??? Any more suggestions??? :-(
