Should the Canon installation CD be misplaced or otherwise unusable, Canon printer drivers may be downloaded from Canon's Web site at www.canon.com. The home page might seem a little daunting, but click on the Support option, which is currently located on the left side of the Web page. After clicking on this option, you will be prompted to choose your region of residence, and you must do so to proceed.
Afterward, you will be led to a new page. On the left-hand side, you will see a link for "Drivers & Downloads." Then you will be prompted to choose either Consumer or Office/Production products. Follow the prompts, and you will arrive at scroll down options for selecting your specific printer's type and model. Check your printer or the box it came in for that information. When the option to download the drivers appears, simply follow the steps and download the driver program to your Desktop, where you can begin the process of installation.
The process of installing printers and their drivers differs according to brand. As such, installation of Canon printers and printer drivers is unique, and every user of Canon printers must understand Canon's specific process for the best results.
