Summary: In this post, we will be going over how to install a Canon driver onto a PC. The first step is to go to the Canon website and download one of the drivers. Next, you will need to choose the printer you would like to add a driver for. Finally, you will select the port you need to add. Now, you should be able to install your driver.

First, go to usa.canon.com

Click “Drivers and Downloads” in the upper right corner.

In the search box, type in the model number for your device.

Click¬†“Drivers and Downloads” again, then under “Recommended Printers”, click on the download the begins with the characters “UFRII….”.

The downloaded file will be a zip file. Extract it’s content to your downloads, then open the folder and click on “Setup”

Once the installer is up and running, agree to the license agreement. On the next page, you will see a bunch of options to chose from, select “Custom”.


On the next page select “Add New Printers”.

After that, select the printer you are installing a driver for.

The next page will have a button called “Add Port”, click on that then select “Standard TCP/IP Port”.


It will then ask for your printers IP address. If you don’t know your¬†printers IP address and you don’t know how to find out your printers IP address. Watch the video below.

Now click next after typing in your IP address, then click “Next”

You are now back to the printer information page and from here you can rename your printer to something a little more friendly.
