How can I change the default target folder used to store the scan files that are produced when I scan a document or other type of output file such as PDF? The software default profiles for all types of output files all specify simply using default Win local user library Documents folder paths, that is, saving to C:\username\Documents library folder, and it cannot be edited. I tried specifying a new shortcut for the PDF type, for wxample, but it really just duplicates the HP built-in profiles except for the shortcut name.
The scans from my HP printer all go to the same Windows library Document folder for anything scanned, and I must then go to the MyDocuments folder and move the scan files to whatever folder I need for destination storage. This is very inconvenient if I am scanning a large number of documents at one time.
Is there a way to get the HP software to ask me for a destination folder to save the output files to when I do a scan? By that I mean where I just set a particular folder as a default preference for each type of file that remains the target for that type unless the preference is changed.

From the HP Scan software select your required scan shortcut and press the More > option in the side of the screen.
Within the Destination tab, you may change the destination folder.
You may also check the box to Show Save As Dialog, then a Save As dialog will be shown upon saving a scan.
Click OK to complete the changes and click the disk icon near the shortcut name to save the changes as default, that can also be done for the preconfigured scan shortcuts provided with the software which are accessible from the printer front panel too.
