    i still dont have the answer to my 2 "scan" questions.

    the many mails you are sending me,i cannot answer you because my computer does not react when i click on "Reply to Expert".

    Expert:  Printer Expert replied 2 years ago.

    I will opt out and open the question to other experts.

    Expert:  Russell H. replied 2 years ago.
    You need to scan to PDF (as a file format) using your Brother MFC-7840W.

    It is recommended that you use either Brother Control Center (a program that Brother distributes free of charge for use with its products), or Presto PageManager if you have it installed on your computer.

    If you do not have Brother Control Center installed on your computer, I will instruct you how to do so and how to use it, if you will tell me whether your Windows 7 is the 32-bit or the 64-bit System Type.
    Customer: replied 2 years ago.

    i have control center 3 of brother installed on my computer.

    i have windows 7, 64 bit system.

    i want to know how to scan to PDF and how to scan multiple pages.

    tnku very much.

    Expert:  Russell H. replied 2 years ago.
    Why not scan multiple pages through the document feeder on top of the machine?

    Or do you mean, to scan multiple pages and have them all come out in the same file, as opposed to multiple files, one for each page scanned ?

    To scan to PDF file(s):

    Open the Brother Control Center 3 application.
    [if at any point these instructions are puzzling or not complete enough, just stop and ask me in reply and I will explain in further detail.]
    Click on CONFIGURATION, then on SCAN.
    Choose FILE (or EMAIL if emailing PDF, or doubtfully IMAGE but I don't think so).
    The Scan To configuration window will show.
    Two tabs, choices to configure, are here: SOFTWARE BUTTON (configuring the action of the Scan To button in the Control Center program on the computer.) or DEVICE BUTTON (configuring the action of the SCAN TO button on the printer itself.)
    Choose the SOFTWARE BUTTON tab for now (to do PDF scans from Brother Control Center.)
    On the File Type menu, choose PDF.
    Click OK. (All subsequent scans [with the Button of the tab chosen] will use this file type setting.)

    Then to do the scan (with Control Center software):
    Place the document (if one page) on the scanner glass, or (if multiple pages) in the document feeder or ADF on top of the machine.
    Click on SCAN.
    Select 'FILE'. (For instance.)
    The document scans.
