Hi mlekc01,

 

I understnad you have a Deskjet 2540 and are wanting to know how to scan with it. I would be happy to guide you in this.

 

Without knowing which operating system you're running on your computer, I will have to link you to the page where you can select which operating system you're working with.

 

You can see which version of Windows or Mac you are using by clicking on either of those links and then you can click on this How to Scan: Deskjet 2540 page to select the operating system you're using.

 

Hope this helps, have a great day!!

Re: How to scan a document with the HP Deskjet 2540 All in one.

Indeed, spent a lot of time to find the way out!

 

Windows 8: go into settings - control panel - harware & sounds - view devices and printers - RIGHT CLICK  on HP deskjet 2540 (best if it is linked with USB port to your computer) - start scan

 

Mac OS 10: go into users - your name - library - Printers - HP Deskjet 2540 series - scanner

 

In all cases, better to create a shortcut / put an image of the printer in your toolbox. As well as to update your computer's software...

 

Hope it will work for you

how do I scan on 2540?  Gone to link provided in forum but no options are given where it states choose option below- very frustrating and shouldn't be this fiddly - I'm working on Windows 7
