Second Step: Install Drivers

A driver is a small program that communicates the user’s messages from the operating system to the hardware and communicates any hardware failure reports back to the user. Hence it is important to keep your drivers updated at all times to ensure that your computer is running smoothly and flawlessly. When you want to install the drivers for the first time, there are three ways to do so:

Method 1: Use The Disc provided

Some printer manufacturers provide a user installation disk that contains all the software and drivers required to connect and use the printer. Use this disc and follow the onscreen instructions to install and configure the printer.

Method 2: Use The Device Manager

Microsoft has inculcated a built-in tool in Windows 10 that auto-detects any new hardware and initiates a driver installation process. When you connect your printer to your computer and turn it on, you would see a device manager prompt. Follow the steps, and the drivers will be automatically installed on your PC.

Method 3: Use The Official Website

If you did not receive an installation disk or did not get a device manager prompt, then you can navigate to the official website and download the driver and install them on your computer. Follow these steps to download the drivers:

Speakers

Step 1: Open the Canon Website on your browser or click on the link below.

Step 2: In the Search box located right in the centre, type in your Printer model number and hit the Enter key.

Step 3: You will be able to see your printer’s image along with some options. Choose Drivers & Downloads and click on it.

Step 4: Check if the Operating system detects automatically it is correct and select the drivers you wish to download and then click on the Select Button.

Step 5: Next, click on the Download button to begin downloading drivers.

Step 6: Once the driver file is downloaded, double click it and follow the onscreen instructions to install it on your PC.

Once the driver installation process is complete, restart the computer and connect your Printer. You will now be able to print from your computer with ease.

Third Step: Update Drivers

Once you have installed the drivers from the canon’s website for the first time, you will be able to print with no issues. However, it is important to keep drivers updated; otherwise, you can’t maintain a smooth flow of commands between the computer and the printer. To update drivers, you can either use the Canon Website to download the updates and then install them or use a driver updater tool like Advanced Driver Updater.

Step 1: Download and Install ADU from the link provided below:

Step 2: Once the application is installed, click on the Scan Now button to begin the scanning process.

Step 3: Once the process completes, a list of all the drivers’ issues will be displayed on the screen. Choose the driver you wish to update (Graphic Driver in this case) and click on the Update driver link beside it.

Note: Once the driver is updated, restart your computer to let the changes take effect.

Advanced Driver Updater is a fantastic tool that takes the backup of your current drivers before updating them. It also allows users to restore the previous drivers if there are any current drivers’ issues. This tool minimizes time and effort consumption and updates all your drivers within a few clicks.
