Microsoft Office 2010

I have Office 2010 and I need to know where to point with my scanner to save documents in WORD. I can't find a folder for Word, only shortcuts.

I don't think you need to save scans in a specific folder.

Why not just create a folder then you can access files in it from Word through the Open file dialog?

PS Your scanner might save documents to a specific folder itself. I know mine did, but I changed that in the Options of the scanner software.

Saving the scanned document to word also opens word, a one step process, which I used with my old operating system and office program. With Windows 7 and office 2010 I can't figure out a way to duplicate it.  I do a lot of scanning and processing documents so it makes a big difference in overall time spent.

Do you mean that when you selected an option in the scanner software that saved the document in Word format it opened the document in Word?

Is that what isn't happening now?
