Hello,

We have a user whose sole job is to scan a multitude of documents.  

Her default location needs to be changed to the network path where items should be saved.  I can't seem to find the setting to modify this default path.  Is this possible with this app?

Thanks in advance.
RealTimer.

Yes, this can be done. I'll send along screenshots if you want, but the quick steps are these:

Highlight a preset for scanning (such as Grayscale)
Click the "Preset options" drop-down and select "Edit selected preset"
Click the Output tab
You will see a "Save in folder:" box
Click the Change button and navigate to the folder that you want

That's it! It is a "sticky" setting, so it will be there until you change it. Do this on any or all of the presets. One of the nice aspects of this is that each preset may go into a different folder, such as <D:\scanned_docs_grayscale> and <D:\scanned_docs_color>. Regards, Joe

Here are a couple of screenshots that may help. After running Microsoft Office Tools>Microsoft Office Document Scanning, highlight a preset, click the "Preset options" drop-down, and select "Edit selected preset":
