scanning wireless with Vista RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am running Windows Vista and have just set up a wireless printer/scanner, an HP PhotoSmart 2710.  Printing to the wireless printer works fine, but what application should I use to scan from the printer/scanner?  When I tried Windows Gallery I do not see the wireless printer available to me as a scan device.    I know there is another windows application that can initiate scanning, but I have forgotten what it is called.   Windows Fax and Scan is not on my computer, running Windows Vista Service Pack 2, and I do not see where I can download it from the windows site.

    Please help!

  • Hi SteveLD, after checking the issue, it seems this is a general Windows Vista related issue. As this forum focuses on Windows SteadyState specific issues, this inquiry would best be posted to Windows Vista forum:

    The reason why we recommend posting appropriately is you will get the most qualified pool of respondents, and other partners who read the forums regularly can either share their knowledge or learn from your interaction with us.  Thank you for your understanding.
