Getting Started Guide
Using the scanner buttons
The scanner has four buttons, each defined for the most common scanning
functions.
Scan to image editor
Scan to folder
Print a copy
Scan to email
Power light
Scanning to an image editor
Press the image editor button to scan your image directly into an image editor.
Use the editor to make adjustments to your image, add text, crop it to a different
size, etc. Once you are done, save your new image to a file.
Scanning to a printer (making a copy)
Press the printer button to make a copy of whatever you place on the scanner
glass. Your document will be scanned and then printed on your default printer.
This lets you use your scanner as a personal copy machine.
Scanning to email
Press the email button to scan an image and attach it to a new email message.
Type a note, select a recipient from your address book, and send it. This is a quick
and easy way to send photos to friends, family, or business associates.
Note: Your email program must support MAPI for this feature to work properly.
Most email programs, such as Outlook and Eudora, support MAPI.
Scanning to a folder
Press the folder button to scan an image and save it in your My Pictures folder.
The image will be named according to the date and how many images you have
scanned that day. For instance, the second image scanned on May 1 would be
named May-01-002.jpg. You can change the image file type and folder using the
Button Manager … see page 7.

Scanning
Using the scanner utilities
Several utility programs come with your Compaq scanner.
Button Manager Utility
The Button Manager utility lets you set options for each of the scanner buttons.
You can change the image editing program, the scan folder, and other options
for each button. To access the Button Manager from the Start menu, click:
Programs Compaq S200 Compaq S200 Button Manager.
Copy Utility
Scanning
The Copy utility helps you make multiple copies easily. If you are only making a
single copy, use the Printer button. If you need to make more than one copy of
the same document, use the Copy utility. To run the Copy utility, from the Start
menu, click: Programs Compaq S200 Compaq S200 Copy Utility.
Scanner Test Utility
The Scanner Test utility simply tests the scanner. It is used to determine
additional information about the scanner. To run the Scanner Test utility from
the Start menu, click: Programs Compaq S200 Compaq S200 Scanner Test.
Using the scanner software
To scan and save files on your PC, the Compaq S200 scanner uses a standard
TWAIN interface for scanning documents. On newer operating systems, a WIA
(Windows Image Acquisition) interface is provided. Because the S200 supports
both TWAIN and WIA, it is compatible with a wide range of software.
Windows Imaging
To perform a scan using the standard Windows Imaging utility:
> Start the Imaging utility from the Windows Start menu.
Click Start Programs Accessories Imaging
> Open the File menu and choose the Select Device … menu option.
Make sure that the selected scanner is set to Compaq S200.
> Open the File menu again and choose Scan New (or Acquire Image
if you are running Windows 2000).
> If you are using TWAIN, press the Scan button. Otherwise, follow the
scanner wizard.

Getting Started Guide
OCR (Optical Character Recognition)
The Compaq S200 scanner includes software to perform OCR (Optical Character
Recognition). The OCR software converts a scanned document into a file you can
edit with a word processor. You can use the OCR software directly, or you can
configure the image editor scanner button.
Using the Button Manager, reprogram the image editor button to a program like
WordPad. Now place your document on the scanner and press the button. Your
document will be scanned, converted to text using the OCR software, and loaded
into your selected word processing program.
Additional software
The Compaq S200 includes additional scanning and image editing software.
This software was selected to help you maximize the use of your scanner.
Use the software to explore the many capabilities of your new scanner.
Getting more from your scanner
Large scan areas and/or resolutions above 300 DPI require additional memory
and disk space, and will take longer to process. To minimize this, use the Preview
button first. Then select only the area you need to scan, and don’t use a
resolution above 300 DPI unless you know you require it.
Your scanner is ideally suited for many types of projects. Scanning photos,
documents, and making copies are just some of the things you can do.
With scanning and printing software, you can create greeting cards, iron-on
transfers, and many other projects. Check the Compaq website periodically
for activities and ideas.
From the Start menu, simply click Programs
