Did you know that you can now add applications directly to the new quick menu for the ScanSnap iX500? The scanner comes with several applications to help operators be productive with their scanned paperwork and business cards. If the application can open and view a PDF or JPEG file, it can be added directly into the quick menu. Here’s an example on how to add Photoshop as a new application to the quick menu:
Step 1: Add your Application to the Quick Menu
Double-click on the ScanSnap icon in the task tray
De-select Quick Menu. (Quick Menu will not have a check mark next to it when it is disabled.)
From the Application tab, click [Add or Remove…]
In the Add and Remove Application dialog, click [Add…]
The Application Settings dialog will appear. Click [Browse…]
Browse and locate the Photoshop .exe file (example: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS6…)
In the Application Settings dialog name the application and click [OK] (example: Adobe Photoshop)
Add a description if needed
You can also choose the file format that is supported (PDF or JPG)
Close the Add and remove application window.
Step 2: Begin Scanning
Turn on the Quick Menu
Load paper in the scanner
Press the scan button
After all your pages have been scanned you will be presented with the Quick Menu and Photoshop will be added.
It’s as simple as that. Now you can easily add your favorite application that supports PDF or JPG directly to the Quick Menu for easy and direct integration.

Upon transitioning from a PC to a MacBook Pro recently, I found my old fi-4120c wouldn’t work with the Mac so I ordered a brand new ScanSnap S1500M to go with my new laptop. Installation was a snap (pun intended). The Mac recognized the ScanSnap easily and I was up and running in no time. The S1500M recognizes every document’s characteristics automatically and adjusts for single or double sided scans, paper color and paper length. It’s just a joy to use and even superior to the 4120c’s older technology. – David, Albuquerque, NM
