Please help me to understand scanning.

Slowly adapting to digital photography world , I'm not sure what I was doing wrong or missing something when I tried to scan a 4x6 picture into my laptop using the Epson Artisan 800 printer/scanner . scanning using the included printer's professional mode , 800 dpi ; original 4x6 ; photo mode , the result was a small picture as I saw in preview mode and in my laptop final file ( it shows the small picture sitting in the corner of the entire frame area and I could not expand it at all) when I clicked to view it , the picture was smaller then those imported from the SD card right out of the camera . Is there any way that I can expand the picture area to fill the entire may I say the surface of the scanner ? I'm confused , please help . Thanks .
