IJ scan utility stopped scanning multiple pages

My Pixma MG3620 has always worked perfectly with the IJ scan software. After I clicked Document, it scanned one page then gave me an option to scan another page or stop. Now suddenly it only scans one page and the box giving me the choice doesn't appear. This means I can't create multiple page documents and would need to use PDF software to laboriously construct one out of multiple scans.

I tried to download the software again but the download wouldn't start.

I'm using Windows 10 on an HP desktop. This same setup always scanned multiple pages before.

Would appreciate assistance!

Thanks so much! I must have changed that setting by accident and not realized it. Now it works right!
