    Windows fax and scan grayed out forward as email

    I need to email scanned copies of different things. I can scan them ok, but I am having a hard time emailing them. I have tried setting up my gmail account in the scan setting window with no luck. With another program (paper port) I could just drag the file into the email - this won't work in the windows fax and scan program.

    Thanks for help - in advance.

    My guess is it's looking for the Mail App and or Outlook.

    Have you tried saving the scanned images to a file, and then simply attaching that file to your email? Drag and drop is application specific

Quick scan & Full scan
As a practice if a Quick scan detects something I fix it & then run a Full scan & a boot time scan. Avast just detected 1 infection. When the scan is complete I will fix it & do as I stated above. I really should run scans more often, as should everyone. 46771
