Step-by-Step How to Scan Documents

By Juderson Jean-Baptiste

Scanning machines allow you to preview photos and documents on your computer. You will then be able to edit the documents you have scanned. This saves you a lot of time because you do not have to retype the documents into the computer. Windows operating systems have a built-in scanning and faxing utility. Before scanning, make sure the scanner is on, and the document is inside the scanner.
