Windows 10 scanning software

When you buy a scanner, you are provided with scanning software from the manufacturer. This program, generally to be installed, is very often feature-rich. This richness translates into a very complex interface, perhaps in some cases not clear to users who do not need to make particular choices but simply “push a button” and start scanning.

In all cases where the manufacturer’s scanning program is “oversized” you can choose to use the scanning software included in your Windows 10.

Windows 10 contains document scanning software. This scanning software initially detects the presence of an installed scanner and allows its use.

You can launch the software by typing “wiaacmgr.exe” in the search bar.

If you want to make it even more convenient to use you can go to the System32 directory, find the software file, go over it with the mouse and push the right button; select “Send to Desktop”. You will create a shortcut for the software on the desktop.

C:\Windows\System32\wiaacmgr.exe

Set up an Office 365 account on GMail

This article was born from the difficulties encountered in setting up a Microsoft Office 365 mail account on the Gmail mail client on a smartphone. But

Reading Office 365 in Gmail is not recommended.

In the Gmail add account screen, the most obvious attempt is to add the account using “Exchange and Office 365”.

You will see the mailbox added correctly and working but we have encountered problems: in some accounts on Gmail you do not see all the mail folders in the mailbox.

Solution

The solution is to perform an installation in imap.

Install the account using “Other”:

Once you have entered your email account, the “Manual Configuration” button appears.

Push it. The procedure will ask you in sequence:

password
address of the mail arrival server: outlook.office365.com
address of the mail receiving server: smtp.office365.com

The procedure does not require the specification of ports. For the sake of completeness, we recall all the parameters of the Microsoft Office 365 imap and smtp.

IMAP settings – Server name: outlook.office365.com – Port: 993 – Encryption method: SSL

SMTP settings – Server name: smtp.office365.com – Port: 587 – Encryption method: TLS or STARTTLS

Important

By doing this you deactivate the synchronization of address book, calendar and email. To solve it, simply go to the Outlook app, in the account and reactivate the synchronization.

But remember that the best thing for Office365 is to use the Outlook app on smartphones. Reading Office 365 in Gmail is not recommended.
