How do I scan?

Ho do I scan?

It's better to use the built in software that comes on the Mac rather than trying to use the scanning feature directly from the computer.

1. Search your computer for "Image Capture". It comes on every Mac and you can find it in the applications folder. You can also use the spotlight search tool (the magnifying glass in the top left corner of your screen) to search for it.

2. After you've opened Image Capture, select the scanner you'd like to use on the left column.

3. If you see a button in the lower part of the window that says "Show details", click it to see more options on the right. If you now see a button that says "Hide details", you're on the right track.

4. Using the options on the right, you can make choices like whether to scan from the feeder or the glass, what quality you want the scan to be, where you want it to go, what you want to name it, etc…

5. Hit scan.

If you are just trying to make a copy of a document then use the printer itself. But for Scanning, it's best to just use Image Capture from your computer.
