    I'm almost positive this can be done under Windows Vista. I have a little HP all in one printer/fax/scanner. I have a receipt for tires I just bought. I want to scan the receipt, and somehow save it to the hard drive of my computer, or maybe the flash drive. I don't remember installing any software when I bought the printer, both the printer and my lap top are HP. I think this can be done just under Vista.
    Thank you, help is greatly appreciated.

    Normally with any scanner, you need to have the driver installed for the computer to recognize it. Usually the driver is located on the software disk and you can just locate the setup.exe. However, if it's an older scanner you will need to visit the HP site to look for a Vista driver for it. It may be called TWAIN driver. But by default, Vista will scan documents into your C:\Users\<username>\Documents\ directory.

    You can also follow this guide to help you scan:
