Thanks for posting your question on Justanswer.com, a global paid independent support site.My Name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today.Do you get the prompt on the printer screen or on your PC ?
Can you tell me, what options do you get ?
OK, when you try to scan from the printer, what option do you select, like scan to computer or anything else ?
OK, when you see the screen on your PC, there must be option to select the default action for every option on the screen, try to find out option for PDF or doc to PDF, and select which program should open for that option, like adobe acrobat etc. if you select that program then, it will open when you scan from the printer, instead of that screen.
Can you click the Scan to button option on that screen ?
OK, I think you have reconfigured the software and that is why you are getting the settings screen everytime you try to scan from the printer. Follow the steps below to make a new shortcut on your printer for PDF and when you select that shortcut the document will be scanned automatically without giving you the settings screen.
