How do I scan all documents into one PDF?

Answered by Robert Flynn

To scan multiple documents into a single PDF, follow these step-by-step instructions:

1. Ensure that your scanner is connected to your computer and turned on.
2. Open the scanning software or application on your computer. This software may vary depending on the scanner you are using.
3. Look for an option or button that allows you to customize your scan settings. This is usually represented by a gear or settings icon. Click on it to access the settings menu.
4. In the settings menu, locate the option that says “Prompt to scan more pages” or something similar. Enable this option by checking the corresponding checkbox or toggle button.
5. Once the option is enabled, click on the “Scan” or “Start Scan” button to begin scanning your first document.
6. Place the first document you want to scan on the scanner’s glass bed or in the automatic document feeder (ADF), depending on your scanner’s capabilities.
7. After scanning the first document, a prompt should appear on your computer screen, asking if you want to scan more pages.
8. If you have additional pages to scan, place the next document on the scanner and click the “Scan” or “Continue” button in the scanning software. Repeat this process for each document until all pages are scanned.
9. If prompted, continue placing and scanning pages until you have scanned all the desired documents.
10. Once all the pages are scanned, the scanning software will typically provide options for saving the scanned documents. Look for an option that allows you to save as a PDF file.
11. Choose the PDF format and specify a location on your computer where you want to save the scanned PDF file.
12. Give the PDF file a name and click the “Save” or “Finish” button to complete the process.
13. Your scanned documents will now be saved as a single PDF file, combining all the pages you scanned.

It’s worth noting that the steps above may vary slightly depending on the specific scanning software or scanner you are using. However, the general process should be similar. Refer to your scanner’s user manual or online documentation for detailed instructions if needed.
