Scanning to bmp, rtf, tif, png files

HP Recommended
Officejet pro 7740
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Just bought a 7740 to replace an antiquated unit.  The product sheet says one can scan into a number of file formats: bmp, jpg, png, tiff, rtf, but the "full" featured software only allows scanning into jpg.  Is there a way to unlock scanning into other file formats?  Or, has HP removed this capability?

 

I have tried using the drop down menu for scanning photos, jpg is the only choice

I have tried using the drop down menu for documents: pdf is the only choice

There appear to be no options on the printer control panel for changing the file type to scan into.

 

This should not be this difficult.

Hi,

From the HP Scan software select Everyday Scan, this will allow selecting any of the required file formats.

 

The other shortcuts such as Save as PDF or Save as JPEG are only intended for the specific formats as their name.

 

Regards,

Shlomi

Thank you all for the replies.  Apparently once the full featured software is installed the system required a reboot and/or software restart to enable access to the all of the scanner features.
