How can I scan multiple pages into one pdf file with my HP Officejet 5740 printer? After I save the first scanned page, there is no option for me to choose continue with the next page.

Double click printer icon on desktop,
Select Scan a Document or Photo,
Put the first page on the glass (face down),
Check options (size, dpi ...), and select Scan document to file,
Click Scan - machine will scan the first page
Remove the first page on the glass, put the second page,
Click + (plus sign) It sits on the left hand side of a red x
Machine will scan the second page, put 3rd page on the glass and click + again ..... to the end then click Save
Click Done after Save

Hello Bahien: Thank you for your response, but the HP scan dialog box that comes up on my screen does not have the "Scan document to file" option and after I scan one page, there is no "+" to advance to the next page.
How can I send you a screen shot?
Should I download a newer version of the HP Officejet 5740 Printer SW?

Does not work. Double-clicking on my desktop only opens a dialog box asking me to run setup. It's already set up and connected to the network. HP Scan dialog box does not have a + sign anywhere and is no longer accessible once the first page is scanned.

I've tried using the flat bed option and ensuring the resolution is <300 DPI but I don't get the redX or any other indication to add additional pages.
Changing the original just creates another single page scan.
I've tried everything I can think of ..... any other suggestions?

Thanks for reaching out!
I see that you are having issues while scanning multiple pages using your Officejet 5740 printer. Did you try using the HP Scan software from the computer?
Try the steps below:
- Insert the pages in the ADF (Automatic document feeder) of your printer or in the scanner bed.
- Now open the “HP Scan” on your computer. You can double-click on the printer icon on your desktop to get the HP Scan if it’s not a shortcut on your desktop.
- You can check this video for instructions: http://bcove.me/p1clcd0f
