How to Scan QR Code On Your PC

2

It’s odd that you want to scan a QR code right from your PC, but sometimes there is a need. Doesn’t make any sense to pull out your smartphone to scan it from your computer’s monitor and view it on the tiny device when you have the big monitor right in front of you.

QR code is short for Quick Response code, very much like the barcode you find on the back of any product you can buy from a supermarket. There were a period we aren’t sure if the QR code will survive. But apparently, the usability has got better over time with a wide spread of smartphone population. It’s cool to pull out your phone and scan it.

Well wait no more, you can do the same right from your PC as well.

Thanks to addictive tips for sharing this neat tool, CodeTwo QR Desktop Reader, makes all those possible.

Download the tool, after installing it. You can read the QR code in two forms. One is uploading an image file that contains the QR code, and the other would be scraping right from your computer’s screenshot. Click “From screen” to make a selection around the QR code, release the mouse, Code Two QR Code Desktop Reader does the rest of the job.

If you are interested, you can always generate your own QR code to try it out.

  1. It’s not odd when you have is a set of laptops for an elementary classroom center. A QR code reader allows students to check answers, solve problems, and edit words and sentences while integrating technology. Thankfully, most of these students DO NOT have a cell phone they can just whip out…and the reader that you recommend is junk. Just FYI.
