An example of what you may look at is:

Load the following items on the scanner glass :
- Single items
- Items that are easily damaged, such as old documents and photos
- Multipage, double sided items that you want to scan into one file
- Option one: Document feeder tray
- Place the item into the document feeder tray. The printed side faces up and the top edge goes into the tray first.
- Adjust the width guides to fit the item.
- Option two: Scanner glass
- Open the scanner lid.
- Place the item with the print side down on the scanner glass. For the correct position, see the engraved guide near the corner of the glass.

Email as PDF
|Use this setting if you want to scan and email a non-editable text document in Microsoft Outlook or similar email software.|
NOTE:You can only email a scanned document if you use Microsoft Outlook or another software program as your primary email program. You cannot use email programs such as Gmail, Yahoo Mail, or Hotmail, unless you can send and receive emails from your account using Microsoft Outlook or a similar program.If your email is not set up to accept files directly from a scanner, save the scan to a file on your computer, and then attach the file to an email.
If my post helped you in any way, please click the blue KUDOS star under my name! It would mean a great deal.

I had seen the HP scan software icon on my desktop but did not realize that clicking on it would automatically activate the scan feeder and then save it as selected email to pdf.....cool!
