Use Your Computer To Send Documents via Windows 10 Fax

If you spend lots of time on your computer and almost as much sending faxes, you should know there’s an option to ditch the fax machine and switch to a Windows 10 fax app.

You don’t need to purchase a fax machine or print out a file to fax it. A computer can help you send faxes online.

In case you’re interested in other fax-related matters, DoNotPay can show you how to get a fax number or send faxes from your laptop or phone. You can also go through a review of fax services to choose the one that meets your needs.

How To Set Up Your Windows 10 Computer To Fax Documentation

Even if you spend plenty of time in front of your computer, you may still be unaware of everything it can do for you. One such option is the Windows Fax and Scan app that can transform your computer into a fax machine in the blink of an eye.

Before you start faxing people and organizations from your computer, you need to make sure that your PC has:

  • A fax server
  • An analog phone line
  • A fax modem

If you’d like to fax files from home, you’ll need to plug a Windows 10 fax modem into a standard analog phone line.

You won’t need a modem if you work in a company that has a fax server. In this case, you should set up a connection between your computer and the fax server to enable the Windows 10 fax service.

If you still haven’t used Windows 10, maybe you can start a free trial and see if it suits you.
