How to delete a scanned image that saved itself in my screensavers

Using a Canon printer, I scanned a document that saved itself in Pictures. This turned out to be the Screensaver and, having read through myriads of web instructions, I cannot neither find the file on the Library or System/Library. I am using a MAC 0S X High Sierra system and Safari web browser.

  • Hello Karen,

    If you've selected the Pictures folder as the source of images shown in the screensaver, all files within that folder (and any sub-folders) will be used. So if the scanned document was saved to Pictures, it is automatically included in the screensaver.

    If you can't find it in the Pictures folder, perhaps it's stored in one of its sub-folders. Which one that is usually depends on the software you used to produce the image. For example, if you used Canon's own MP Navigator EX software to scan the document, the image may be stored in the "Pictures/MP Navigator EX" folder.

    If you can't find the Pictures folder itself, open the Finder, click "Finder" in the menu at the top of the screen, then click "Preferences". In the "Sidebar" tab, make sure the checkbox before "Pictures" is checked, then close the Preferences window.

    The Pictures folder should now appear in the "Favourites" list in the left sidebar of the Finder window. If the sidebar is hidden, click "View" in the top menu, then click "Show Sidebar". If the Favourites list is hidden, hover your mouse over the "Favourites" title in the sidebar, then click "Show" when it appears on the right side.

    Hope that helps! Let me know if you need any further assistance. If so, it would be helpful to know what app you used to scan the document with your printer.
