Not sure how to set up Windows Fax Scan &

Original title: "Windows fax and scan"

I'm not sure how set the computer to my phone... it is already connected to the internet... If I understand correctly... I think so..

If you use a dial-up connection, then the line is indeed already used with the internet.  You can do this through the internet, and you may not use this same line while it is used for the internet.  You need an analog (non-digital) line separated with a fax modem or (one in your system) be bound separately or you need to switch back if it is a good analog line and you have everything you need to fax. Here's how to set up fax and scan:http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/Set-up-your-computer-to-send-and-receive-faxes.  Here's a FAQ on Windows Fax and scan, which can also help to answer your questions:http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/Faxing-frequently-asked-questions.

I hope this helps.

Good luck!

  • Windows Fax & Scan does not open

    I am running Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit version.  I've moved my documents of the C:\ drive for my E:\ Some time ago data drive.  When I open the Start Menu I see now "data (E :)". "on the button to read the 'Documents '.  I then the folder by right click on the default value of 'Documents' label, enter the properties/location and indicating that I tried the new location to be E:\ E:\.  The system has done this, place the folder Documents under E:\.  This has not been a problem until I tried to open Windows Fax Scan & today and I got a dialog window read: "Windows Fax and Scan cannot function as it can not access your documents folder.  Make sure that Windows Fax and Scan can access this folder. "It's all very logical, but it doesn't tell me how to do this.  How do I point to fax and scan to the new location of the My Documents folder?

    From: Russ Valentine

    Reposting and quoting directly from the developers: we noticed a few problems as WFS is turned when the documents folder is redirected to the root of a drive (for example D :\) and study the same.) A quick solution is to move the documents folder in a folder under the root of the drive (for example at d:\DocumentFolder) with the ability to move all existing documents to the new location. This should allow for WFS to work.

  • Windows Fax & scan using Outlook 2007 does not display do not all contacts

    This can be a matter of Office 2007. I use Windows Fax Scan & and Outlook 2007. I can't choose a recipient in Outlook 2007 Contacts correctly use in Windows Fax & Scan. When I click the To: button in Windows Fax & Scan I have only three columns displayed. Name, full name, and e-mail address.  If the recipient does not have an e-mail address, his name does not appear. Who am I put in wrong place? I don't see an option in Windows Fax & Scan. What is an Outlook setting? Any help would be appreciated.

    From: Hal Hostetler

    This is probably due to sync Palm/BB and/or the / import export, email addresses don't always 'solve' prevents them underscores when used in address lists.  One thing to note for the future is to NEVER use Outlook. PST, import and export functions, they are broken and have been, they lose data and the. PST Import feature usually corrupts the Outlook profile in use at the time.  Instead, just make a copy of the current value, by default. PST file when Outlook is closed, take this copy to your new computer, place it in a folder where it will NOT overwrite any existing... PST files, make sure it is not set to read only (which will happen if you use a CD for transfer, then open of in Outlook using ' file |) Open | Outlook data file. " Do drag what you should leave the default copy on your new machine, or set as the default value and continue to use it.

    About 900 contacts, see if this clever utility can help with that:

  • How to use cover pages in Windows Fax Scan &?

    I am trying to create a cover page for the Windows Fax & Scan that I use for my small business as well as

    I don't have to keep tapping all my details every time I send a fax

    I created a cover page using the tools of the editor, but when I open it to compose a fax, nothing

    shows that I have added fields for the sender, receiver etc.

    Is there a better tutorial for it as that is linked to the WFS help file?

    I'd settle for a "signature" at the bottom of the form file, even if it is possible

    Thank you

    Hi Ashish, thanks for the answer...

    I discovered that, for some reason, the fields defined by the cover page

    model are not filled until I have click on 'send '.

    I tested sending a fax to a destination to nowhere, and then view the fax in the

    box of shipment, and all the information is present

    Not an ideal situation, but now I know to check the content as I type it

    rather than depend on the preview function

    much obliged!

  • Busy in Windows Fax Scan line &

    I can't do Windows Fax & Scan send or receive a fax.  I get the error message "busy phone line."  I also do not see an icon in the device for my internal fax modem Manager.  I have a HP 6930p Energy Star.  I am running Windows 7 Professional SP1 64 bit.   I have IE 9.  Thank you for any assistance.

    Hello

    This problem can occur because of incorrect settings or because of permission problem. To solve the problem we will try a few methods.

    Method 1:
    Make sure that you have configured Windows Fax and Scan to work with the modem. You can connect the modem to a fax only. You must also make sure that the computer is connected to an analog phone line, and that the phone line has a dial tone so that you can place and receive phone or fax calls.

    Check out the link for more information.

    Configure your computer to send and receive faxes
    http://Windows.Microsoft.com/en-us/Windows7/set-up-your-computer-to-send-and-receive-faxes

    Method 2:
    If you have already set up Windows Fax and Scan to work with the modem, but you still can't send or receive faxes, check them the modem settings to see if send and receive options are turned on.

    To turn on send and receive options for a modem:

    a. click the Start button, click all programsand then click Windows Fax and Scan.
    (b) to use the fax at the bottom of the left pane, click Fax.
    c. click on the Tools menu and then click fax settings. If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
    d. click the general tab and then, under device name, make sure that the modem is selected.
    e. under send/receive options, make sure the checkbox allow the device to send faxes is selected.
    f. make sure the checkbox allow the device to receive fax calls is selected and choose how to receive faxes:

    -Answer phone calls as incoming fax calls using Windows Fax and Scan, click manually answermanually, then click OK.

    -For Windows automatically answer phone calls as incoming fax calls, click automatically answer after Xrings, select the number of rings after which Windows may attempt to answer phone calls as incoming fax calls and then click OK.

    Method 3:
    If someone else set up the computer to send and receive faxes, you might not have permission to use the built-in or external fax modem.

    To give all users permission to send and receive faxes:

    a. click the Start button, click all programsand then click Windows Fax and Scan.
    (b) to use the fax at the bottom of the left pane, click Fax.
    c. click on the Tools menu and then click fax settings. If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
    d. click on the Security tab, and then, in the group or user names box, click everyone.
    e. in the permissions for everyone box, select the checkbox allow next to permission to Fax and then click OK.

    Hope this information helps. Answer the post with an up-to-date issue report to help you further.

  • The confirmation of receipt on Windows Fax Scan &

    I use Windows Vista Ultima Winfows Fax & Scan.

    I need to get a confirmation of fax receipt when I send faxes. Windows Fax Scan & has a "receipt of e-mail" option, but when I select it, I can't send faxes. I get an error message indicating that I have to deselect this option. I have reviewed all the menus and options, but impossible to find other options for confirmation by fax. I can't even include a "status" column in the "sent" box which would take account of the 'success' if the fax went through. I was able to add a "Status" column in the regular Inbox.

    Can someone tell me how to change the setting so that I get a confirmation when my fax is received?

    Thank you.
