Windows 7 and Vista came with some included programs which would run the installed scanner and allow to save the scanned file as some choice of image extensions.  The programs were Windows(Live) Photo Gallery, and some other Windows Scan &/Fax program, and also MS Paint.  What program does Windows 10 came with which allows the scan and save the scanned image?

 

The scanner itself came with included software for running the scanner to save images, but such software is not necessary if some other program is already installed to handle these image processes.  The idea, is to be able to avoid (in the future) installing unnecessary software when installing a new 3-in-1 Printer/Scanner/Copier, or any printer/scanner combination product.

There is an app called "Scan" that is included with Windows 10. I don't own a scanner, so I have no idea how good/bad it is.

Scanny (from the Store) is worth looking at.

When I plugged my scanner (an old Canon Canoscan) into my Windows 10 computer it took about 30 seconds for my computer to search the web for the appropriate drivers, install them and I was able to use the scanner within a minute. It was all automatic with the included scanner software of Windows 10.

That is amazing, and very encouraging.  Now, about what programs will let me RUN the scanner to make a scan and save the image as a file,  I will look into "Scanny", but I am interested to know what comes with Windows 10 which might already be on the computer now.  Paint should do it ( I tried this on another computer already); and I strongly suspect that an extra art & greeting card program recently installed will do it  (menu items in it indicate it may)(but this program did NOT come with Windows).  Any other facts will be of interest from any members who can say.
