Scan, Save, and Print A Single Page

Scanning:

Once you find the first page that you would like to scan, make sure that it is properly lined up by selecting "Auto Adjust" or "Auto Straighten" from the tool bar on the right hand side of the screen. The entire image you want scanned should fall between the green border lines on the screen.

5. Find the next page you would like to scan, make any necessary adjustments and click on "Scan to Drive #1" again.
