Default Windows Fax and Scan: Preview or scan images as separate files

This "product" was never meant to replace the functions that any scanner
software provides.

Please forget I mentioned PDF format. That can be converted at a later
time
nor is it pertinent to the inital problem of not being able to save
several
scanned documents individually.
So this product will only scan multiple pages and save them as one file.
It
does not give you the choice of saving each scanned page as its own file.
That is a shame. If you can do it with pictures, why not documents? That
question needs no answer but would be a good enhancement to the product.
Thank you for your condescending but somewhat informative answers.

Read the Help files more closely. That option only exists for someone who
has cropped their image and is trying to save individual pictures as
separate files.
WFS cannot create PDF files. The functions you need would be supplied by
your scanner, not WFS.

The customer is trying to scan several documents. She would like to
save
each
document that is scanned as a separate file. According to Microsoft's
documentation, all that needs to be done is to check the "Preview or
scan
images as separate files"
This option is greyed out. How do I enable this option?
Thank you!

Might want to post more clearly what you are trying to do and what
doesn't
happen that you think should. Scanning to PDF is a function of your
scanner,
not WFS.

hello-
I am trying to find out how to enable "Preview or scan images as
separate
files" for a new or existing scan profile.
It is currently greyed out and reguardless of the options I choose,
I
cannot
make that box available to check.

Goal: scan several documents so that each document is scanned in as
an
individual pdf file.
OS: Windows Vista Business edition
Scanner: HP Officejet 6310 all-in-one with the latest drivers.
Thanks!
