Scan and Share

If you have a scanner as one of your computer devices or a printer all-in-one that includes a scanner, you can use Scan and Share to quickly select scanning options and share your scanned documents. Simply open WinZip and click the Scan and Share button on the Tools tab to begin.

WinZip Scan and Share first tab

The first Scan and Share tab displays your connected scanner, provides a suggested filename that you can edit, and provides file type options. In the example, we have selected to scan our document as a PDF file, which gives the option to combine pages into one file when a document feeder is in use.

WinZip Scan and Share second tab

The second Scan and Share tab, labeled as WinZip Express, is very similar to the one used for WinZip Express for Explorer with these changes:

  • A suggested name based on the date (yyyymmdd) and time (hhmmss) prefills the name text box
  • No PDF conversion option is offered as it can be selected in the first tab under Scan As
  • An additional Zip file Save Zip file to destination, Current Zip file, is available. This would be used when a Zip file has been opened and the person wants to use Scan and Share to add scanned documents to that Zip file.
  • There are no Automation Option buttons

If you have any questions about this information, please submit a Technical Support ticket.
