Windows 10 scan options includes several methods to scan documents / images.

 

What to do?

 

All (except Paint) do include a "Entire Scan Area" (or similarly named) setting that will scan the entire bed on which the item is placed.  This should keep the item from inadvertently cropping the content.  You will need to open the saved file and then crop the content to your satisfaction after the scan is complete.

 

HP Scan includes a "Detect Boundaries" / "Auto Detect Size" (or similarly named) option that should clip the boundaries at the edges of the item(s) being scanned from the glass.

 

In General:

Adjust the settings as  needed to get the scan size as close as possible to the original.

Use the method that best suits your situation.

 

 

NOTE:  Two methods are not included in the examples below

Irfanview scan and Twain Scan

Examples available upon request...

 

Examples...

 

Full Feature Software (HP Scan is part of this software)

HP OfficeJet Pro 7740 Wide Format All-in-One Print and Scan Driver and Accessories

 

General Example - HP Scan

9025_HP_Scan_menu_JPEG_19025_HP_Scan_menu_JPEG_1

 

and

HP Smart for Windows

HP Smart is an application available in the Microsoft Store

 

General Example

HP_Smart_W10_Start_Screen_1HP_Smart_W10_Start_Screen_1HP_Smart_W10_Scan_Photo_Screen_2HP_Smart_W10_Scan_Photo_Screen_2

 

and

HP Scan and Capture

 

HP Scan and Capture - Microsoft Store (formally Windows Store) - Requires Windows 8 or higher

 

 

General Example

Scan_and_Capture_Crop_1Scan_and_Capture_Crop_1

 

and

Webscan (called from EWS)

 

Webscan – located in the Embedded Web Server (EWS) – No additional software

If the printer is on the network,

  • Open your favorite browser > type / enter Printer IP address into URL / Address bar
  • Tab Settings > Security > Administrator Settings > make sure Webscan is checked / enabled
  • Click Apply to save any changes

Next

  • Tab Scan > Webscan 
  • Set up Webscan the way you want it - for example, set the Source to ADF - Scan a test document using Webscan

 

General Example

EWS_9025_Webscan_1EWS_9025_Webscan_1

 

and

 Paint (mspaint) 

 

Specific Example - Scanning at high DPI / Resolution

Reminder:  This is slower than scanning at lower resolutions - that is, it takes longer to complete the scan...
