The ControlCenter application will be loaded in the Task Tray near the system clock. (It appears as a blue square.)

3. Click on Configuration -> SCAN -> File.

4. The Scan to File configuration window will appear.

5. The Software Button tab configures the Scan to File button within the ControlCenter software interface. The Device Button tab configures the Scan key on the Brother machine. Choose the tab you want to configure.

You can configure the following properties. Once you have configured each setting click OK. All subsequent scans will use these settings.

Step 2-1: Use the Scan to File feature from the ControlCenter
