Efficient scanning from HP device

It allows you to scan both documents and photographs or other images using an HP scanner. You can edit and reorder document pages and export your scanned images in several different formats.

Usage and functions

HP Scan and Capture for Windows 10 is straightforward to use. When activated, it scans for devices within the range including wireless printers, scanners, and any devices connected to a local network. You can scan documents or images in, then do some basic editing. Crop images or rotate them before saving them as JPEG files. 

Also, you can save text documents as PDF files, either making each scanned page its own PDF or combining several into a multi-page file. You can change the order of scanned pages before combining them. However, it is important to note that it only serves bare-bones scanning utility, with limited control over the final output. It's not a real image editing or document management application, and it isn't meant to be one.
