How do I scan a document in Windows?

In Windows, you can scan documents by using the Windows Scan app. This is a built-in tool that comes with Windows 10 and can be used to scan photos and documents using a scanner or mobile device.

1. Open the Windows Scan app.

You can access this app from the Start Menu by typing in “scan” into the search bar.

2. Select your scanner.

Your computer should detect any connected scanner that is compatible with the Windows Scan app. Simply select your preferred scanner from the list.

3. Choose your scan settings.

The Windows Scan app will give you several options for scan settings. Depending on what type of document you are scanning and how you want to use it, you can choose any of the following options:

• Document Type – This is where you can choose whether you are scanning a document, photo, or other type of media.

• Resolution – You can choose the resolution of your scan, which will affect the quality and size of the file.

• Format – You can choose the file format of your scan, such as pdf, jpeg, tiff, or png.

• Color – You can also select whether you would like to scan your document in color or black and white.

4. Place your document on the scanner.

Make sure that your document is placed securely on the scanner so that it will not move during the scanning process.

5. Scan your document.

Once you have selected the proper scan settings and arranged your document on the scanner, press the scan button in the Windows Scan app. The app will then begin scanning your document.

6. Review and save your document.

When the scan is complete, you will be able to review your scanned document in the preview window. If everything looks good, you can then save the document on your computer by clicking the “Save” button.

And that’s it! You have now successfully scanned a document using the Windows Scan app.
