The link provided is for the address book editor.

What operating system do you have?

The scanning software that was provided with that model originally was called PaperPort, and I believe could be installed only from the original Software and Documentation CDs that came with those printers, and may not be compatible with Vista and newer anyway (I think it came with version 10 and they're up to v14 now). Possibly you can find a version of Dell ScanCenter that will support it (hard to tell without knowing the OS).

Here are the drivers, which should provide Twain interface scanning, and possibly Windows Image Acquisition scanning.

Did you try Dell's OpenManage Software, too?

is the device installed correct in device manager?
then you can scan from Paint> File>import from scanner
intalling the sofftware  can be difficult, or impossible, as said

can we break this down slowly

I do not see in " imaging devices" the dell.... I do see my brother network scanner....

should it be there?   Nor is it in the devices and printers.

secondly,  does dell have a desk top software to control the scanning... across a network?

>>  I do not see in " imaging devices" the dell.... <<<  then it is not installed
>>   I do see my brother network scanner....<<  so should yours

>>  should it be there?  <<   YES
>>>   Nor is it in the devices and printers.    <<  it should be there - if not, there must be an UNKNOWN device

maybe the reason why is shown here - it does not work "out - of-the-box" - and an HOWTO :

Why You Should Analyze Threat Actor TTPs

After years of analyzing threat actor behavior, it’s become clear that at any given time there are specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that are particularly prevalent. By analyzing and understanding these TTPs, you can dramatically enhance your security program.

I was under the impression that's what the OpenManage software I mentioned in http:#a39827788 did, but never got a reply as to whether you tried it.

If you're talking about OpenManage, it should require an administrator name and password...  it uses Internet Explorer as its interface, so if you're logged on as an administrator try this...

Internet options -> Security tab, select Local intranet then click Custom level...
scroll to the bottom and select Automatic logon with current user name and passwordInternet Explorer - Automatic logon - Intranet ZoneClick OK, tell it Yes, you're sure you want to change the settings for that zone, then OK out of the Internet Options dialog.
See if that automatically logs you into OpenManage when you start it up.  :)

ARE you logged on as a member of the administrator group?

Is it still giving you a login dialog?
If so, did you try manually entering the current user's name and password?

You could also try through localhost, like
localhost\username
password

instead of domain.tld\username
