Hello my name is***** look forward to assisting and am very sorry to hear that you are having this problem.
What version of windows or mac is on the computer? Please also note scans are saved as images so you can not edit the text in the document.

Windows 7 - I think?

I don't need to edit the text.

Expert:  Freddy M. replied 3 years ago.
Click on start and then right click computer, in the right click menu choose properties.
The window that opens will say which version of windows you have. I need to know what email service you use as well.

Sorry, I hit a problem!

I am sure have Windows 7 and G-mail, make sense?

Thank you, ***** ***** the start menu and then on all programs.
Click on windows fax and scan, a new window will open.

Make any changes you want and click scan, save it to your desktop.
To do that click on file and then save as.

Next open your gmail and create/reply to an email.
In the toolbar which will either be at the top or bottom click on the paper clip, then point it to the saved file to attach the scan to the email.
