Microsoft Lens

Microsoft Lens is a scanning application integrated with Office 365 apps.

Microsoft Lens trims, enhances, and makes pictures of whiteboards and documents readable.

You can use Microsoft Lens to convert images to PDF, Word, PowerPoint, and Excel files, digitize printed or handwritten text, and save to OneNote,  OneDrive, or your local device.

Office Lens for Windows is longer available for download from the Microsoft Store as of January 1, 2021.
