You can run brother's PC FAX software which will allow you to view then from your tray icon

Each time your computer receives a fax, the PC-FAX icon in the task tray will alternate between and .

When the fax has been received, the icon changes to .

The icon changes to when the received fax has been viewed.

  1. Double-click to open the Fax Received folder.

  2. Double-click any new faxes to view them.

    The name of your unread faxes will be based on the date and time that the faxes were received (for example: Fax 2-20-2014 16;40;21.tif) until you assign each fax a file name.

i want to delete this icon one finished with it . How do I delete it from there.

I don't understand what you are asking.

You can either have the icon there, which will alert you when you have a fax, or you can use the control center when you want to check. But if you remove the icon (which you could do by closing PC-FAX), then it won't be running so you can click on it when you receive a fax.

The fax icon will change when you have a fax. Once you view the fax, the icon will stop blinking - note that PC-FAX and the control center are two different programs, each with different functionality. PC-FAX is just for a quick way of viewing faxes without, as you mentioned, going through three levels of menus.
