Home Support Scanners WorkForce Series Epson WorkForce ES-300W

How do I scan using my product's control panel?

    You can scan using the  start button on your scanner. This automatically starts Document Capture Pro (Windows) and Document Capture (Mac) and the scan job you have assigned to the button.

    Note: If you installed the Epson ScanSmart software, pressing the  start button on your scanner starts Epson ScanSmart instead. For instructions on scanning with Epson ScanSmart, see the help information in Epson ScanSmart or click here to access the Epson ScanSmart User's Guide.

    Note: If you did not install Epson ScanSmart, make sure Epson Scan 2 and Document Capture Pro (Windows) or Document Capture (Mac) are installed on the computer connected to the scanner. Document Capture Pro (Windows) and Document Capture (Mac) do not support scanning from the  start button on your scanner over a wireless network (ES-300W/ES-300WR). Launch Epson Scan 2 before scanning from the  start button on your scanner.

    1. Make sure the scanner is connected to your computer or network (ES-300W/ES-300WR).
    2. If you are scanning using the ADF, slide the mode selector to  ADF. If you are scanning a business or plastic card using the card slot, slide the mode selector to card.
    3. Load an original in your scanner.
    4. Press the  start button. The scanner starts the job that was assigned to the  start button in Document Capture Pro (Windows) or Document Capture (Mac).

      Note: You can view or change the scan settings using Document Capture Pro (Windows) or Document Capture (Mac).
