Many of the best computer tips, tricks and solutions are simple, easy and can cost very little – or even nothing. A prime example is the workaround to scan a document without a scanner. The trick is to use a free fax service to send the document to yourself. First, sign up for a free fax number at a site like www.k7.net. Though the fax number you’ll be assigned won’t be in a local area code, many people have unlimited long distance plans anyway. Once you get your phone number, just fax any document you need to scan to the number assigned to you. The system will turn the document into an image, and then email it to your computer a minute or two later.
