Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 8 years ago

Thanks for all your help......you have been so patient with me.

As you can see......I had tried everything and just couldn't find the pdf feature.

Now we know why this has been so frustrating.

Is there any other tips once this upgrade is installed so I can print to pdf?

hi again,

 

new hp solution center is very easy.

 

it will put a shortcut (icon) on your start button. so you will be able to open your hp solution center from there.

 

when you open it, just click on SCAN PICTURE and then it will load the same display as you saw a while ago. BUT, this time, after SCAN TO, there will be an additional option which says FILE TYPE. this section includes JPG, PDF and TXT. just select the PDF to save as PDF

 

anyway, i will be here anytime. if you have trouble, i will help you again.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
