Photosmart C4480 Scan document to file

I have a Photosmart C4480 which works well scanning photos. How can I scan a text document and save it my documents on a PC?

Just open HP Solution Center and click on the Scan Document button. it will save the scan under My Documents\My Scans, just like all scans.

Where is the HP Solution Center? There is no mention of it in the Basic Guide provided.

If you installed the complete software from the CD, you'll have that program. you should see a shortcut icon on your desktop.

I installed the complete software from the CD and I have icons HP Photosmart and HP Photosmart Essential. Niether of these takes me to HP Solution Center.

Thanks DexterM, I found HP Solution Center and sucessfully scaned and and saved a document.

This should be included in the Basic Guide provided with the machine.

Re: Photosmart C4480 Scan document to file

i dont think that is necessary. normally after the installation, the Solution Center 'splash screen' opens up with information about the Solution Center and it's purpose. so if you follow the basics guide, the SOlution Center should revela itself to you. besides, the full manual has info about when to use it!

You didn't get an answer because it can't be done!  It's as simple as that!

I need to scan a document to a file so I can email it to someone.
