    Hello friends,

    I own a Brother MFC-L2740DW and when I use the automatic document feeder to scan images, it opens each file after finishing the scan. How do I disable this? I looked for an option in Control Center 4, but couldn't find a solution.

    There is a "Target Application" option under "Device Scan Settings," but no option to disable it.

    The reason this is a problem is because when I scan 10 images, I get 10 windows that open, which I have to close individually.

    I am running Windows 7 with all the latest drivers for both the printer and operating system.

    Any help would be much obliged.

    Thank you.

    Do what I did... switch scanning programs. The HP Scan works good on my Brother MFC-J870dw.

    HP Scan Extended For Windows.

    Once it's downloaded and installed, go to Start > All Programs > HP > HP Scan Extended > Run "HP Scan Extended"

    Make searchable PDF scans with this free scanning software -
