Re: HP Office Jet 4500 How to scan

Select "Scan" on your printer and then Select "Scan To" and then select your computer name. One of the options should be Email DOC - PDF. You will need to have an email client (such as MS Outlook) installed on your computer to be able to use this feature. The scanned image will be automatically attached to a message using the default email client.

[ Edited ]

I realize this is an old post and am hoping it is still active. I have spent many, many, many hours trying to get set up to scan to pdf. It will only scan to tiff, png, bmp or jpg and cannot locate *anywhere* that I can select .pdf. Please someone -- help me. I have spent waaaaay too much time on such a simple thing. It is exasperating! Seen lots of answers and uninstalled and reinstalled using different methods. Thank you for your help. Windows 7 on Mac hardware on PC side. Scanner works fine on the Mac side but inconvenient to reboot to scan a document as a pdf.
