    It depends on what all-in-one unit you have, what is the model number of your all-in-one(Printer/scanner).

    Also some terminology corrections;

    Sending something from your computer to the printer that is printed onto a page is called "Printing".

    Taking a paper page and scanning it to the computer is called "Scanning".

    Cordless in computers is called "Wireless".

    For that unit it comes with a program called Epson Scan but you can also scan by using the buttons on the front of the unit itself.

    Here's a link to the manual: http://esupport.epson-europe.com/Fi...RjFpOQEab0U002FPDI63GxD5jACGdAU003D&id=373947

    Probably worth reading the whole thing but scanning to computer is on Page 24.

    Additionally Epson has online guides here: http://support.epson-europe.com/onlineguides/en/xp-202_205_302_305_402_405/
    They also cover scanning and in much greater detail.


    In case you do not have program installed, all the Epson downloads are available here: http://esupport.epson-europe.com/Pr...R3tWyRjFpOQEab0U002FPDI63GxD5jACGdAU003D&tc=6
