    Windows 10: Scan a document and save with a document name

    In my older version of Windows, I was able to scan a document, name it, and save it to a specific folder. I could also scan multiple documents using one file name. I have been struggling with Windows 10. I am able to scan a single document, can not add
    a second page, and I can not name the document. Help anyone?

    Windows 10: Scan a document and save with a document name

    Hello Deepak,

    I have an HP Officejet Pro 8500.

    I am using the app, in the app section, in the Windows 10 start area, called "scan".

    With Windows 7 I was able to use Document Manager.

    I could scan multiple pages (with my flatbed scanner) and save in the same document / PDF file.

    I could save the scanned item with MY document name, not the generic "date" name the Win 10 scan app uses..

    I could save to the folder of my choice.

    All of this worked perfectly. Now it's all gone with the useless scan app that is now in Win 10.

    Is anyone aware of a reasonably priced solution?

    Trouble shooter did not help.

    Barbara

    Windows 10: Scan a document and save with a document name

    You can still "...save to the folder of (your) choice". The last "item" (choice) at bottom of left panel in Scan app allows you browse to the folder you desire.

    However I, like you, do NOT like the included Windows 10 Scan app because it does not allow:

    - naming the file before scanning

    - adding pages to existing scan

    - adding pages to an existing PDF file

    - ETC, ETC, ETC...
