4. Select the scanner and click OK

5. Place the first page of the document on your scanner

6. You will then be prompted to specify the settings for the scan. The appearance of the panel in which you enter these settings depends on what scanner you are using but you should select the appropriate settings, which will generally include a Resolution of 300 dpi and start the scan.

10. Continue until you have scanned in all the pages of the document.

11. Click File - Save and navigate to the appropriate folder on your computer where you are saving the files, and enter the appropriate file name e.g. 2010-09-23    Letter John Smith to Peter Brown, click Save and then click File - Close.
