How to change settings for Scan to File:
Click the Scan tab and right-click the File button. Then, choose Button settings.
Scan to File
The settings window for Scan to File will appear. Configure the settings and click OK. For example, you can set the prefix text used for the file name of the scanned data in the File Name box. You can also set the folder to save the scanned data in the Destination Folder or Scan Location box.

I have used the scanner 2 years ago, so it worked then. Unfortunately I do not remember how it worked. My Mac is 10.10.3
