    On my old computer with XP -OS, when I pushed the scan button on my Cannon printer/scanner, the scan would open in photoshop. On my new computer with Windows 7 OS, I have to open the scan from the Cannon software on the computer (the scan button on the scanner has no effect). The
    Cannon driver seems to be up to date for Windows 7.

    How can I configure my settings so that when I hit scan on the scanner it will automatically open and preview in photoshop?
    Many thanks, askiles

    It is possible this feature will not work in Win 7. I have had some hardware that lost functionality with Win 7 because the drivers are not exactly compatible with Win 7. I wonder if this is the case here. What model is your Printer/Scanner?

    This site from Canon shows drivers available for your All In One for Win 7. You do have to know whether your OS is 32 Bit or 64 Bit, then download the proper bitness driver to install. I would download and install the latest driver in the correct bitness and see if this helps.
