Installing Canon® Printer Drivers for Windows® Vista®
Learn how to install a Canon printer on Windows Vista
Canon printers are very popular and for good reason. Canon is one of the trusted names when it comes to imaging as they have been making excellent lines of printers and cameras. When installing a Canon printer on a computer or laptop that is running Windows Vista, you need to have the proper drivers or else it would not work. Getting and installing printer drivers is a relatively quick and easy task if done correctly.
Here are the important things that you need to know to while installing Canon printer drivers in Windows Vista:
- Knowing your printer and computer
- Where to get drivers
- Installing the driver
Knowing your printer and computer
Before you do anything, you should learn as much as you can about your printer and your computer in order to avoid mistakes and ensure that you do it right the first time. For the printer, you should look for the printer model number, which is usually located in the body of the printer. This would help you in looking for the driver. With your computer, you should try to see whether you have a 32-bit version of Windows Vista or the 64-bit version. One is not compatible with the other so make sure that you have the correct drivers.
Where to get drivers
Getting the correct drivers is not really a problem as long as you have an Internet connection that is faster than dial-up. Canon hosts all the drivers of their products in their support site so you do not have to search for it and possibly get malware from other malicious sites. To get the driver for your printer, just go to the link posted below and click printers. You would then be given a series of choices to narrow down the specific model of your printer. Once you have selected your printer model, just click on drivers and software to go to the page with the actual drivers.
Installing the driver is also very easy since it comes with an interactive installer. Just run the installer and follow the prompts. It should ask you to plug in your printer at some point. If your printer is already plugged in, just remove it for a few seconds and plug it back in right away.
