    Windows Fax & Scan - Change Save Folder?

    I want Windows Fax & Scan to save scans to a folder of my choosing. Can this be done since I don't see an option from the program menu?

    Does 'tools' 'scan routing' offer a solution ?

    I know this is a different UWP program but Microsoft's newer Windows Scan does allow you to choose the save location. Mum uses it all the time.

    "I want Windows Fax & Scan to save scans to a folder of my choosing. "

    I believe this works like 'MS Print to PDF' so it defaults to last used location. With printers, if you uncheck the option to 'Let Windows manage my default printer', you can manage the default thru Control Panel. You might try opting out to see if the setting carries over to scanner management. Easy enough to try. Good Luck.
