Printer message when I press scan says. Set PC to start scanning and I can't remember how to do it as I have a different laptop an Acer Aspire E 14

To scan using the control panel of the printer, you need to start or configure the IJ Network Scanner Selector EX program on your PC, you can follow the steps from the link below to do that.
