Expert:  Viet - Computer Tech replied 1 year ago.

I'm sorry about the computer issue. Was it scanning fine previously?

Is there any error or message when scanning?

Do you mean you do not see the scanned files in the folder Documents or Pictures and/or in any subfolder there?

In the HP Scan program or HP Solution Center program or HP OfficeJet program, at the scanning window, check the option Save to to file Save options, or option Advanced settings or option More, then option Destination, then option Save Location or Save to Folder, do you see the folder path or folder name there?
Do you have windows xp, vista, or 7, or 8, 10, or mac computer?
Can we do a remote support session, so I can troubleshoot the issue directly on your computer together with you?

Hi, Viet,
I apologize for not replying to your emails sooner.
Unfortunately, I really cannot rate your reply. I was suddenly called away, and had to deal with other matters of higher priority.
During some spare moments away from the computer, I suddenly realized what I should have been doing.
When this method was attempted, everything worked very well. So, I did not, in any way, use your services and/or advice.
I thank you for you attempts to help me, but these attempts proved unnecessary.
I had been using a fifteen-year-old HP 3300 printer/scanner/plotter since new, and found the change to the HP4650 difficult to negotiate at the time. Everything is now working well.
Thank you for your offer of assistance.
As a a result of all this, I have cancelled (unsubscribed) my involvement with your organisation.
But, I do thank you for your offer of assistance.Geoff
