No more do you have to buy additional equipment just to send a quick fax out. And no more going to the local copy store to pay for faxes. Windows 7 has a great feature built right in called Windows Fax and Scan. See how it works.
Windows Fax and Scan turns your PC into a fax machine, potentially saving you money and desk space. When your PC is equipped with a fax modem (or connected to a fax server), it can send and receive documents just like a standalone device. Windows Fax and Scan even includes a handy tool for designing custom cover pages.
By attaching a scanner to your PC, you can also use Windows Fax and Scan to create digital copies of documents and photos.
