Windows fax and scan

Windows fax and scan program have a system tray icon to reduce to a minimum and be avaiable in the background for receptions of fax?


It does not show in the system tray, but it can be set to automatically receive faxes (including settings either manually answer or answer automatically after X number of rings).  This will be repeated so that reduced to a minimum and running in the background display of the task bar.

  • Windows Fax and Scan cannot detect Photosmart C4580 all-in-1 scanner connected to the wireless network

    I have no problem printing or scanning when I connect my C4500 to PC via USB.  When connected via my home wireless router I can print OK but can not scan - it's the same for other users and computers.  Windows Fax and Scan gives me the message 'no scanner found. '  I need to work so that all users on my netwrok home can share the scanner.  I use Windows 7 64-bit.

    Thanks Travis_C (HP).  I actually found the solution just before receiving your answer!  I discovered that, although the Solution Center says it would uninstall the existing files before allowing me to reinstall with the latest version downloaded, it didn't remove all the files.  I only discovered this because the new facility has not taken me through the whole fresh installation procedure, he simply asked me what additional features I wanted to install and asked me if I wanted a local printer or network etc.

    I thought that there must be a mistake or problem with whatever existing files were left and the new facility would not correct it.  So I used the control panel to uninstall the existing files, and I made sure that everything was gone.  I then used the last download to reinstall, this time through the new correct installation procedure, and everything now works perfectly.

    With this method I always had a problem on another PC, giving me the same problem I had before.  I realized that this was due to a USB dongle connected to the PC to a wireless keyboard that seems to affect the installation.  When I removed the dongle installation worked again perfectly, and I now have full printing and scanning ability on all PCs.

    I think the installer for this printer wireless (and perhaps others?) should be updated to solve the problem, and also the center of Solution must be fixed to ensure that if you uninstall the software it should not leave anything.

  • Windows Fax and Scan "Sender Name" empty (Windows Server 2008 Standard)

    Hi all

    I am using Windows Server 2008 Standard (32-bit) with a RocketModem III card.  I have the latest drivers for the RocketModem.

    Using Windows Fax and Scan, I can send and receive faxes fine.  The only problem is when I see the fax, the name of the sender is blank.  I am trying to display the telephone number that someone sends me the fax to.

    I had thought it might also be under CSID, but everything I have complete options because it puts there.  I guess that means I want the CSID show for all those who sent faxes to me.

    It might be worth noting that I have active CallerID and you have a real fax machine that shows the incoming number very well.

    Does anyone have an idea where I could go wrong here?  Thanks in advance for the help!

    This issue is beyond the scope of this site and must be placed on Technet or MSDN

  • Windows fax and scan without adding contact

    I use Windows Fax and Scan to send a quick fax to someone.  In the dialog box "New Fax", you can enter a name of my address book Outlook or to a phone number.  I would like to enter a name and a number for someone who is not in the address book without having to create a contact for them in the address book.

    The cover page editor allows me to insert the two {name} and {recipient Fax #}, so I expect to be able to enter this information when I send the fax.

    Thank you.


    You do so by using a one-off Fax address as indicated in this article:

    The names that you insert in the cover page editor cover fields in your address book to be filled in by the address book when you select a default contact.

  • Windows Fax and Scan does not appear in the start menu

    : I'm using Windows Vista Home Premium and you want to (a) send faxes via a modem local fax and b scan docs from a local scanner. I mean, there should be a program Windows fax and scan shown in the start menu. I clicked all programs on the start menu, and it doesn't always show. Suggestions?

    From: Hal

    Fax and scan is available in Windows Vista Business and Ultimate editions, it is not available in any of the Windows Vista Home editions.  Since you have a version of Windows Vista Edition family, the only option of fax is a third-party product.  These products work under Windows Vista:

    Snappy Fax



    FaxTalk FaxCenter Pro 7.5

    I have seen reports that the free version of BVRP also works with Windows Vista:

    BVRP PhoneTools

    Given the above comes with the new USR modem, I don't know if it will work with no - USR modems.  Alternatively, you can send faxes via your Internet connection provided you are willing to pay for an Internet E - Fax service:

    Personal Fax Services - Internet Fax
