    Yes, but what software will you be using to scan the documents?


    As an example I currently have a Canon scanner with it's own scanning software and one option is to scan each page to let and an option to scan subsequent pages to the same file.....and then save somewhere convenient (or set up the default save location in advance). Other scanning software has similar functionality.


    IMHO better to save to specific folder that you can name conveniently, such as" Data ", under the root of the C drive (or other drive letter if you have more) then you have an easy path to docs etc. rather than at the whim of the operating system. Then they are easier to find!

    Why are you scanning to PDF and then faxing them of all things? Would it not be easier just to send them as an email attachment?

    You haven't mentioned what software you're using. Normally you can scan straight to PDF from the scanning software with the printer.

    You have scanned it, OK but why do you need to save it to your desktop, you never said how you scanned it and in what format and where it is now. You are not helping us to help you with your nebulous statements/questions

    It tends to help us all if people post what they're trying to do and what they've done previously rather than engaging (accidentally or otherwise) in a game of 20 Questions.

    See 10 posts into this thread and nobody's none the wiser why the OP wants to fax something.
