Search Windows in the search web and windows box for fax, and click Windows Fax and Scan in the list of results.
Click New Scan. Select your printer, click OK, and then click Scan.
Then click on file and save as, save the scanned document to your desktop.

Open outlook and open the message you want the document added to.

Click on either the attach button or the paper clip icon and point it to the scanned document in order to attach it to the email.

If this did not work, please come back and let me know what happened when you tried it by clicking on reply to expert so we can continue.

I am very new to windows 10 and cannot find what you suggest ie windoiws in search web and windows fax and scan icon

Expert:  Freddy M. replied 1 year ago.
On the bottom left corner of the screen there should be a search box next to the windows button.
It will either say search web and windows or ask me anything, type the word fax into that box.

Then in the list that comes up choose fax and scan.
Click New Scan. Select your printer, click OK, and then click Scan.
Then click on file and save as, save the scanned document to your desktop.

Open outlook and open the message you want the document added to.

Click on either the attach button or the paper clip icon and point it to the scanned document in order to attach it to the email.

This new Canon MG5650 wireless printer is giving me endless frustration

The windows scan window tells me it cannot see any scanner

Now trying to remove the device and re-install it and it will not remove the printer

I am at a total loss what to do next

Expert:  Freddy M. replied 1 year ago.
You do not need to remove it.It not finding the scanner means that drivers is not installed.Please use this to install it:http://www.canon.co.uk/support/consumer_products/products/fax__multifunctionals/inkjet/pixma_mg_series/pixma_mg5650.aspx?type=drivers&driverdetailid=tcm:14-1184991&os=WINDOWS%2010%20%2864-bit%29&language=
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Ok have downloaded that driver for windows 10 and still when I click on NEW SCAN on tool bar am told cannot detect scanner

Expert:  Freddy M. replied 1 year ago.
Just downloading/saving is not enough you need to run/install the download.
If it saved somewhere double click on the saved file, or download it again and choose the run/open option.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

ok will try that again sorry for being so inept at this

Expert:  Freddy M. replied 1 year ago.
Don't worry I am here to help, if you get stuck let me know.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I downloaded the driver you gave me and pressed the button that said RUN

The printer is still installed but says its offline so |I suppose that is why the scanner cannot see it

How do I go about getting the printer on line now?

Expert:  Freddy M. replied 1 year ago.
You never mentionedit being offline before. That means it can not connect over the WiFi. I need to move this to networking for you in order for someone to help you with that. I will opt out, open this to all experts and move it for you.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Hello Richard

Yes I have been able to print wirelessly before from Word but am trying to scan a document for another guy who has asked me to e-mail it back to him

The printer seems to be permanently offline yet I can connect to the internet as you can see so am flumuxed

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
ok, Press the windows key + R and type in mspaint and press enterIn MSPaint click on File, From ScannerDoes it then scan?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

No it does not scan or let me know that I have clicked on from scanner

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Sorry it was not exactly clear on your response.You were able to click it? If so, what then happened?I can see you are a first time user to the site. What we do here is either a question and answer type of conversation or remote support where I would actually connect to the computer and have a look and attempt to fix the problem for you. Remote support can save a lot of time if you are not comfortable performing repairs yourself. Sometimes even with instructions you can make a mistake and make things worse. I will send an offer through for remote support and should you accept I will connect and see what is going on and fix the issue. Otherwise we can continue to talk like this but I will need to ask a number of other questions and try and walk you through some steps. Both options are 100% guaranteed by the way. Remote is just quicker and avoids the risk of you making a mistake and doing something wrong. If you want remote click get extra help. If not simply reply to me. Thanks, Richard
