Scanned document open as a firefox file and go online.

Posted

I scanned a document using an HP Officejet 4630 Series, connected via USB to my Acer Aspire 5920. I intent to send that document as an attachment but when I do this, the file open as a firefox file and open in a tab and this address; file:///C:/Users/ADMINYO/Documents/Scan0001.pdf. The file properties, in the Type of fileline identify it as Firefox HTML Document (.pdf). But again, the printer is USB connected. In a second try, I turned off both the printer and the Laptop Wifi features having the same results. Any sugestion? Thanks.

Open the file explorer to the folder the file is in. Right click on it. Select Properties on the bottom. Select General. What is listed under Opens With?
