    :confused: Whether moving into a new house/apartment or onto a new computer, you need to be the one that needs that figures out where you want to store your stuff. Reason being is because if someone else does it for you, you're going to have a hard time tryhing to find your stuff.

    I believe I know what you are asking for, but I have not seen any for personal use.

    What documents are you referring to? Word files, PDFs, etc?

    You don't need more software to do this.
    We don't store files on our computers. When we have any file (doc, xls, pdf, jpg, etc) that we consider important. We copy the file to two USB sticks at minimum.
    Get in the habit of doing this and all your files will be stored together in one place.

    I want to search or organize my scanned in documents to have them be reached in one place. Just one piece of software to have everything listed their.

    I don't know if you need the scanner to work with it, but SnapScan by fujistu has the SnapScan Organizer. What scanner do you have?

    If you have a AIO printer...aka 4 in 1, you can scan your document manually and then it will store it in it's default location or tell it where to store it. If you want an easy to use (for dummies)....then I recommend the NeatDesk scanner.

    Well it seems they don't make those anymore and went software cloud based. You can find them on ebay or Amazon and Walmart.

    I've been using the standard PaperPort version 8 since about 2001. Still functions well on Win 10, so I don't intend to upgrade
    It used to be owned by ScanSoft, sold to Nuance and now seems to be owned By Kofax.
    Older versions from about 9 on back got better reviews than the newer versions, however, the newer versions do have advantages.
    Dropped was the proprietary .max format for scanning and replaced with the more common .pdf format.

    It's worth a look.
    And shop around if interested. I've noticed frequent sales promotions at 1/2 retail.

    That's one good reason to use a digital filing cabinet like Paperport.
    Convenience.
