I have a Canon MX490 printer. Everytime I hit the scan button on my printer, it says "wait a while" and launches Photoshop. How can I turn that off? I just want the printer to save the scan, not lauch an application.

You can adjust what program opens from IJ Scan Utility. In IJ Scan you will want to go to settings and adjust the open with an application under Save to PC. Please click HERE to open the online manual that will show you where you can access the option.

Are you sure you have the defaults set correctly for each scan heading? If Photoshop is present, that might be the culprit.

The IJ Scan Utility has options for adjusting the options in the IJ Scan Utility itself, and for the "Save to PC" options. The "Save to PC" options are meant for scans that are performed from the operation panel.
On the upper left corner of the Settings menu, please click the Save to PC button (middle) then make the adjustments for the tabs there.

I have to keep repeating myself...
When I use the IJ Scan Utility everything works as it should. It is when I use the scan button on the printer itself that Photoshop launches. I guess I will have to look on the Photoshop side for a solution. I will add that when I push the scan button on the printer, the LCD sceen says, "wait a while". It is during that time Photoshop launches. Photoshop doesn't even load an image. It just starts and sits there, making the action useless and annoying.
