Canon IJ Printer Driver
The Canon IJ printer driver (called printer driver below) is a software that is installed on your computer for
printing data with this printer.
The printer driver converts the print data created by your application software into data that your printer can
understand, and sends the converted data to the printer.
Because different models support different print data formats, you need a printer driver for the specific
model you are using.
Printer Driver Types
On Windows Vista SP1 or later, you can install the XPS printer driver in addition to the regular printer
The XPS printer driver is suited to print from an application software that supports XPS printing.
• To use the XPS printer driver, the standard printer driver must already be installed on your computer.
Installing the Printer Driver
• To install the regular printer driver, load the Setup CD-ROM that comes with the printer, and then
install the driver from Start Setup Again.
• To install the XPS printer driver, load the Setup CD-ROM that comes with the printer, and then select
XPS Driver from Add Software.
Specifying the Printer Driver
To specify the printer driver, open the Print dialog box of the application software you are using, and
select "XXX Printer" (where "XXX" is your model name) to specify the regular printer driver or select "XXX
Printer XPS" (where "XXX" is your model name) to specify the XPS printer driver.
