    I'm using a visioneer 8700. I just scanned 100 pages of hand written letters. I chose to scan multiple pages from the config menu. After I am done scanning I clicked done scanning and it opens windows picture and fax viewer. I can see the pics just fine. I cant find the pics in the comp. If I want to see them I have to scan another pic. I scanned them into paint, but I can't find them. I did this with typed text to word and it gave me the option to save somewhere. Paint did not. Do I have to save these individualy?

    Have you tried looking at the export features of yourvisioneer scanning software. Normally when you scan something, the scanning software will create the image or copy or whatever, in its own format, you then export the image as an image file or document file. Most scanning software has links to things like Word or Paint, allowing you to just drag n drop which automates the conversion into a document or graphic image.

    Yeah, I'll probably use paperport and save as a jpg

    paperport is good at that type of thing, you should be able to export the scan as various types of files.. good luck, any more problems let us know. :D
