Windows 7: Scanner Repair/Maintenance

04 Mar 2011   #11

W7x64 Pro, SuSe 12.1/** W7 x64 Pro, XP MCE

It now appears that I may not need a new scanner after all, because I was using it in XP, but now in W7 it is purring like a kitten, albeit a bit sleepy one. Apparently, W7 doesn't work it as hard as XP does. However, the scanner interface is much easier to use in W7, because the preview is much larger, and it seems to automatically frame the object much better, plus when it does need adjustment, it is not so touchy to use.

Before using the program that is set to acquire scans, I thought that since the HP x32 software didn't work on x64 OSs, that I had to use the built-in camera and scanner wizard of XP, and I wasn't sure how to scan in W7. I noted that the program selects the scanner by setting it to WIA-HP OfficeJet 5500, but I haven't been able to find that directly via the OS, so that I could create a shortcut for using it elsewhere...anyone know how?
