Help for Downloading Canon Drivers

Home  »  Articles  »  Canon  »  How to Download a Driver for Your Canon Printer?

Like all printer manufacturers, Canon periodically releases updated printer drivers for its product lines. These updates often provide enhancements and fix bugs or other issues discovered after the initial driver release. Other updates provide compatibility for new operating systems. Since drivers are responsible for facilitating communication between the operating system and the printer, keeping them up-to-date is important and should be part of your company's routine printer maintenance. You can obtain Canon drivers from Windows Update or the manufacturer's website.

Try to Fix it by Windows Update

1. Log in to the computer with the physical printer connection or the printer server where the current driver is installed, as appropriate. You must use an account with local administrator access to the computer or server.

2. Click "Start," type "Windows Update" (without quotes) in the Search box, and select "Windows Update" when it appears in the results.

If your printer still doesn't work, find the model number and download a driver yourself.

1. Open the Web browser of your choice and navigate to the Canon Support and Drivers Web page http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support.

2. Click the "Consumer & Home Office" link in the Product Type column.
3. Select "Printers & Multifunction" from the Product Family column.



4. Click your Canon printer model series from the list under Product Series.



5. Locate your specific printer in the Models column and click "Drivers & Software" to open the Canon product's Web page.



6. Select your operating system and specific OS version from the two drop-down menus.

7. Click on the "Drivers" bar to bring up a list showing all available drivers for your printer. Select the driver file appropriate for your printer.
