    Picture size when scanning? Help appreciated!


    I was scanning some papers with Scan in Windows 8, but when they were scanned and I viewed them in Scan the image was much larger than the original and I couldn't find any 'Original size' option or similiar. So how do I view papers and images in original size in Scan and aswell when I view them in Paint and other programs? Might just be a silly thing I don't know how to do, but please help me with this.

    If there was something I didn't explain properly just ask.

    Thanks! =D

    Depends on what DPI you used, most scanners set it at 300 dpi, what you are seeing is the full size of the documents. you should be able to set your scanner to bump that down to 100 or even 72 dpi. How does it look if you zoom it down?

My HP ENVY dv7 Notebook PC has a funny quirk about it. My network usually will always connect. When connecting it will say every once in a while can't connect to this network. I think I have narrowed this down to it being the computer itself. My other laptop running windows 7 doesn't do that. ...
