    Is it possible to manually receive a fax on windows based HP desktop system?

    The current settings on my windows based HP desktop system allows receiving of fax automatically when an item arrives. Is it possible to set it to manual so that I receive a fax whenever needed?

    Hi,

    A Fax can be received manually if and when you want them to be received, the procedure to do it is like this :

    Set computer to receive faxes, Windows will notify you about incoming calls so that you can choose to answer them as fax calls.
    You can receive a fax by clicking the notification.
    If you choose not to receive faxes automatically , take these steps :

    • Click the Start > All Programs > Windows Fax and Scan > To use Fax view, at the bottom of the left pane, > Fax > Receive a Fax Now > The Fax Monitor dialog box appears and displays the progress of the fax.


      Thanks.

    Hi.
    If you set up your computer to receive faxes, Windows will notify you about incoming calls so you can choose to answer them as fax calls. You can receive a fax by clicking the notification. If you choose not to receive faxes automatically or if you miss a notification, you can receive a fax by taking these steps before the incoming fax call stops ringing:

    >>Click the Start button, click All Programs, and then click Windows Fax and Scan.
    >>To use Fax view, at the bottom of the left pane, click Fax.
    >>On the toolbar, click Receive a Fax Now. The Fax Monitor dialog box appears and displays the progress of the fax.

    Thank you.
