I recently updated my computer from Windows 7 to Windows 8.1 and downloaded an up-to-date interface for my Brothers MFC-J825DW printer to accommodate scanning documents. Unfortunately, now when I scan documents, it generates PDF documents instead of JPEG documents. Changing my default through the "Control Panel" in Windows 8.1 did nothing. How do I implement a permanent change?

What is the "up-to-date interface" ? –  harrymc Jun 7 '14 at 15:04
Try using Windows Fax and Scan (available under Accessories in All Programs) –  Vinayak Jun 7 '14 at 15:14
