    But only if drivers exist. You can also scan directly to many graphic applications but all require drivers.

    You mean if Windows 10 natively supports the hardware (without installing a 3rd party driver)?
    I just checked my Insider Build 14352. I never installed my printer on it and yet the Scan & Fax app detected my Epson XP-310 automatically. I did a test scan and it worked.

    Using WIA drivers, perhaps?

    I've always stuck with the TWAIN drivers, although they may offer no real advantage in practice. Maybe I just like the expansion of the acronym (Technology Without An Interesting Name).

    Yes.
    I just did a clean install of 14352 and checked this again, my Epson printer worked without installing 3rd party drivers.

    Well, drivers are needed anyway just depends if they are third party or windows found them on their own. One can always check with Install new printer > My printer is not listed. Check for brand and let it find if exact model exists in MS data base. Found drivers for some really weird stuff like that.

    My Canon CanoScan LiDE 110 works fine with Windows 10.

    Hi there.

    Vuescan will support nearly every scanner in the known universe - even hideously old ones --all work fine on W10 -- it's PAID software but quite cheap -- another alternative if you have an older OS say XP or W7 is to run that as a VM on W10 and run your scanner from there.

    VueScan Scanner Software for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux

    I'm not a fan usually of "Multi-function" devices - especially printers which get replaced fairly often anyway. I like the older canon flat bed scanners and they work perfectly either on XP VM's or with Vuescan. The Canon scanners also do film negative scanning which is still useful from time to time.

    Cheers

    My Viewscan 9 is working unregistered for a year now, didn't notice any limitations in use.
