I have a Brother Printer printer Model number DCP-J315W and need to scan some documents which is easy enough to do but how do I tell the printer where to scan to so I can then find the documents to email them.

With my scanner I have a folder named Scanner in My Documents. When the item is scanned I click on File - Save as - browse to location - and place it in that folder.

Your printer should have software associated with your scanner my Epson certainly does and I can send the scans where I want.

Have a look here, your printers manual as it shows you how to change the output folder for your scans. Brother.

Hi Chronos the 2nd Yes I have the software here for the printer but I thought it had already been installed as I have the control center 3 installed

i have a brother printer (different model). If I open CC3 (the Brother Control Centre), under Scan, Configuration I have the option to choose the folder to which scans will be saved.

This is what I can see by looking at chapter 7,it lists all the places you can send the scan to. Manual.">http://i1288.photobucket.com/albums/b484/MrFraggle/Bits%20and%20Bobs/ScreenHunter_04Mar101315_zps43356a98.jpg%5B/IMG%5D">Manual.
