Okay, first you want to make sure that your scanner is already set up, has power going to it, and is connected to your computer. Turn it on and put your picture or document into the scanner, upside down on the glass surface beneath the lid. Then use the computer software that came with the scanner to tell the scanner to scan the picture or document in. When it finishes the scan, name your picture/document and tell your software whwere you’d like to save it at. Put the original in a safe place.
