No scan to email or Word option for HP 6600 printer

HP Recommended
6600 Office Jet

I have an Office Jet 6600 that only has a scan to computer option which then scans the doc as a PDF. Once scanned it will not allow me to change the format to a Word doc or make any changes. Scan to email would be nice, but scanning to a Word doc would be ideal.

 

Does anyone have a solution?

Hi @Mikerz

 

Welcome to the HP Forums!

 

Thank you for posting your query in this forum, it's a great place to find answers.

 

I reviewed your post and I understand that you are unable to scan to email or to word document.

 

Don’t worry, we will work together to resolve this issue and It’s a pleasure to assist you in this regard.

 

I would like to inform you that you can only scan to email, PDF or JPEG file formats and scan to a word document is not possible.

 

Refer to the below article on how to scan.

Hope that answers your question and you have a great day!

 

Take care.

Scan to email isn't an option for me, unless I have Outlook set up which I don't

I've tried using the windows 10 scan and fax app but it scans as a jpeg.

 

What I need to do is scan in documents that have multiple recipes per page, then be able to copy and paste so each one is seperate.

I have 100 pages to complete with 4 recipes on each. I need to create documents with only 1 per page. Hope that makes sense.

If they are scanned as jpeg or pdf I can't copy and paste what I need to make new documents.

Hi @Mikerz

 

Use the Scan to Email Wizard in the HP software to set up the Scan to Email feature.

  1. Search Windows for your printer model name, and click the printer name in the list of results.

    HP Printer Assistant opens.

  2. Double-click Scanner Actions or double-click Scan to Email Wizard

  3. When the outgoing email profile window displays, click New, and then enter the email address that you want to use with the profile.

  4. Enter an email profile display name. This is the name that will display on the printer control panel for the email profile.

  5. Enter a security pin to restrict access to this email profile from the printer control panel, if desired.

  6. If you typically need to enter a user name and password to log into your email account, enter that information into the email authentication fields.

  7. Click Next, and then click Save and Test or Save to complete the email profile configuration.

Let me know how it goes and you have a great day!

 

Take care.
