Canon IJ Printer Driver
The Canon IJ printer driver (simply called printer driver below) is software that you install onto your
computer so that it can communicate with the 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 printers support different data formats, you need a printer driver that supports your printer.
Printer Driver Types
You can install the XPS printer driver in addition to the normal printer driver.
The XPS printer driver is suited to printing from application software that supports XPS printing.
• Note that if you want to use the XPS printer driver, the normal printer driver must also be installed.
Installing the Printer Driver
• To install the normal printer driver, install the driver from Start Setup Again on the setup CD-ROM
that came with your printer.
• 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 "Canon XXX" (where "XXX" is your model name) to specify the regular printer driver or select
"Canon XXX XPS" (where "XXX" is your model name) to specify the XPS printer driver.
