    Has anyone found a Windows RT compatible document scanner? I went to the Microsoft Windows Compatibility Center but every mainstream scanner appears to be non-compatible. I figured I'd ask here and get some first hand info.The scanner I was using died and I need a replacement and I'd love to get one that works with my Surface if possible.

    Thanks.

    8.1 has a scanner app built in that works flawlessly with absolutely no setup! I've been using it for months with no problem.

    I just installed 8.1 and saw that in the apps list. I don't have a functioning scanner to try at the moment. What scanner are you using? Thanks for the tip!

    It's worked with 3 of my HP printers and 2 of my canon printers with being plugged in as well as over WiFi with no setup at all!
