I recently discovered that my printer, the HP Officejet Pro 8610 can scan multiple pages at a time in the document feeder that I previously thought was only for making copies. I installed HP Smart and was successfully able to scan a stack of documents at a time, only to find out that there is no option to save various pages as separate files. I looked around on the forums here for a solution, to find that HP Smart is apparently incapable of saving the documents separately, and that I need to download and install a separate software, HP Scan. The problem being, I can't find an individual download for HP Scan anywhere, and when I download the "HP OfficeJet Pro 8610 e-All-in-One Printer series / HP OfficeJet 8600 Series Printer Full Feature Software and Drivers" HP Scan is not one of the included applications.
How can I scan multiple documents at a time, and then save each page as a separate file to my computer?
HPSE is a subset an older Full Feature Software suite.
HPSE features are very similar to the HP Scan Software released after 2015.
Although HPSE appears to be a separate software, HPSE is dependent on the infrastructure provided by the Full Feature Software. The Full Feature Software for your printer should be installed before installing and using HPSE.
OPTIONAL: Add HP Scan Extended shortcut to Taskbar / Send to Desktop / Pin to Start
Open File Explorer > Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\HP\HP Scan Extended\bin
Right-ClickHPScan.exe > Select Pin to Taskbar
Right-ClickHPScan.exe > Select Send to Desktop (Create a Shortcut)
Right-ClickHPScan.exe > Select Pin to Start
HPScan Extended features include (and are not limited to): Single, Multiple scans, Image and PDF scans, Email as PDF / JPEG, Source selection, Page Size choices include Auto-Detect (extracts image / document boundary). Might include OCR (Save as Editable Text).
