    Problem with scan to computer after Adobe Reader DC installation

    I have a Fuji Xerox printer, type CM205f. Everything worked normally, including scanning from the printer to computer/USB.

    This morning, I installed Acrobat Reader DC, and printed out some pdf files. Afterwards, I wanted to scan from the printer to computer (USB connection), but the scanning function did not work anymore. It seemed as if it had no connection to the PC anymore.

    I used the Fuji Xerox software (Express Scan Manager) to set up the connection to the PC again, but afterwards it still did not work.

    The only thing that I can think of is the installation of Acrobat Reader DC. Is it possible that this installation is the cause of the problem? If yes, what should I do to get the scanning function back?

    Thanks for all the help.

    Try unplugging the USB from the tower for a few moments then plug it back in.

    What I would do is uninstall Acrobat Reader DC
    Make sure all traces of it has gone.
    Then reconnect your printer/scanner
    Hopefully it should work ok then.
    Also make sure you get Reader from there site

Never mind this. It was nothing to do with Adobe.
I open a lot of manuals and Edge is so basic. It shows nothing from introduction to index just the manual. I used to be able to go to the index and find the specific part of the manual I need. Has Microsoft blocked this. REO
