stve, please give us some time, Den doesn't want to change the letter all he wants to do is copy, and save it, and I'm in the process of helping him to do that.

It sounds as if you're not setting the file save location, refer to: Selecting File Save Settings

Did you notice a settings box like this?
Copy letter from printer to laptop and send as e-mail-dw1.jpg

If you did, do you remember how it was set? In the meantime, let's see if we can find that file. Pay attention to the File Name and Image Format areas of the settings box.

There are two ways Thru Explorer
1.) Using the Start Orb- Search box; Type the date of your scan into the search box, I presume that would be today 02/04/2015. from the results, do you see anything that resembles img001.jpeg?

2.) You can also see the result if you open Explorer and type the date into the search box in the upper right corner.


Once we get you squared away with your letter, stve or I can explain OCR to you and see if that would be something you would like to try.

  • Did you try to find it by using the date technique I laid out in my post #12?
  • If you named the scan try using the name to search for it. If you didn't name it try using the date.

There is one more way to try and find the letter that was scanned. Since the file save settings seem to only show the My Documents, My Pictures or Other:
  • Open Explorer.
  • Click on My Documents and scroll down to below any Folders you may have and look for img001.
  • If it's not there go to My Pictures and do the same, scroll down to below any Folders you may have and look for img001.
  • You can even try img001 in your searches
  • If you see img001 click on it and see what it is.
  • From how you're describing your experience I don't believe you used the "Other" setting.


If you get frustrated and can't seem to find it, you may want to try re-scanning the letter only this time follow the instructions here: Selecting File Save Settings. Remember, you have to make these settings before you scan anything.

Quote:
When you see the File Save Settings window, you need to select the location, name, and format of the scanned image file you want to save.

In the File Save Settings window, specify the location in which you want to save your scanned image. Click the My Documents or My Pictures buttons (Windows), or the Documents or Pictures button (Mac OS X).

  • If you want to select another folder, click Other, then click Browse (Windows) or Choose (Mac OS X) and select the folder.
Note   Note
Use Other then browse to the folder you want to save the new letter scan in. After you re-scan go to the folder you selected and look for it there.

Once you find it, you'll know where to send your email program to go and look for it and attach to your email.
