  • I have a dell all in one and at first it would automatically scan the picture and pull up the program that would load the piture onto my computer but now it doesn't so here is what I have to do hope this helps

    click on start at the bottom left of your computer screen, look for your computers name in ALL PROGRAMS, mine is a Dell so it says DELL PRINTERS

    When you run your mouse over it another side menu comes out with the printers functions, on my computer the scanner function is under DELL ALL IN ONE CENTER, it may also say PICTURE AND FAX VIEWER choose either one of those programs.

    From there it is pretty self explanatory there will be a button for scan item and then it will scan it after that you can select preview scan and you can see the picture. Make sure you pay close attention to what file you are putting your pictures into, this caused me some grief when I scanned mine.

  • just turn it on, open the lid, put the picture face down, && press scan. once the picture has finished scanning, whatever program your computer uses to upload the picture should automatically pop up a dialog box asking you what you want to do with it.

  • If you're computer RETARDANT, it means you are RESISTANT to computers! Therein lies your problem. By the way, the word you MEANT to use in context is ignorant and insulting to those of us who have special needs children.
