It's simple to set up and use a USB barcode scanner.

When you sell retail products, it's convenient and efficient to use a barcode scanner. This scanner allows you to automatically transfer information about the product to your computer system so
that you can keep track of income, place orders for new inventory and take note of sales trends. Some scanners are USB-compatible so that you can plug them into a standard computer with a USB port.

Step 1
Install any software that came with your USB barcode scanner onto your computer first. Some computers may automatically install the drivers required to operate this new piece of hardware.
Step 2
Plug the USB barcode scanner into the corresponding USB port and wait for the system to recognize it. Reboot the computer if necessary to get the device working properly.
Step 3
Program your USB scanner—the process depends on the scanner model, but you'll most likely have to scan a series of barcodes on the printed device manual in a certain order to get the scanner
working properly for your other items. The scanner acts as sort of a keyboard input device, reading the information from the barcode and typing it into a blank field on your program, such as
database program Microsoft Access or word processing program Microsoft Word.
Step 4
Load the program of your choice (database or word processing) where you want to enter the barcode information. Scan your first item with the device--place the red light directly over the middle of
the barcode--and wait for the information, including product name, UPC or ISBN number, price, and publisher or manufacturer data, to display.
