Windows 7: Open With?

Open With?

I have thousands of scanned items and 10,000+ pictures and I use ACDsee for all my scanned docs and pictures but I can't copy anything from my scanned documents which has been causing me some time and problems. I open with many programs and when I do all me files associated with the one I open will all change which are over 10,000 so I have to change one back then they all go back. This doesn't sound right to me so my question is I have a scanned documents which has a key of 64 digits which I don't want to type in so how can I do a copy and paste. This has really frustrated me so I could use any help you can give me. It looks like a jpg (JPEG), Thanks

i use live photo gallery to view my photos and scanned docs and pics, explorer has no problem doing a copy of a scan. im not sure why the file associations keep changing , presumably you are not selecting default program when using open with.

Hello Richard,

You would need to install and use a OCR scanning software that scan a document and save it as a .txt or .pdf file to be able copy and paste text from it.

Hope this helps,

just a thought but does the scanner software not allow you to scan the docs as a pdf ,allowing you to copy or edit the doc/scan

You can convert a scanned doc which becomes a picture into text using One Note. Tutorial is here: OneNote - Copy Text from Image
