Canon MF Toolbox provides Canon scanner owners with a pretty basic and simple to use application software for their daily office tasks involving document scanning. As Canon MF Toolbox only features a small panel with all the available functions within, you can start using them on the spot.
You can easily choose to rapidly scan a document and convert it into an email attachment for fast sending of your most important messages to your most treasured business partners or, why not, even friends. This first option uses your default email application, so make sure that you have set it up properly before opting for this particular operation.
OCR does exactly what is supposed to. Although Canon MF Toolbox does not come packing an OCR (Optical character recognition) program to take care of your documents, this specific function scans the document and sends it to your installed specialized software. Once again, if you intend on utilizing this feature, you must previously deploy such software to you system.
The rest of the functions are as intuitive as the first two ones, with scanning and saving into various image formats or PDF documents as well as directly scanning to various pre selected applications of your own.
The bottom line is that Canon MF Toolbox does not move mountains when it comes to document scanning and it can only be perceived as an elemental scan utility for your USB connected Canon multifunction device. Its simplicity and ease-of-use make it the choice of most users that have limited needs and the simplest of tasks.
