Deleting the Unnecessary Printer Driver

The printer driver which you no longer use can be deleted.
When deleting the printer driver, first exit all programs that are running.

  1. Start the uninstaller

    Select Control Panel -> Programs -> Programs and Features.
    From the program list, select "Canon XXX Printer Driver" (where "XXX" is your model name) and then click Uninstall.

    The confirmation window for uninstalling the model appears.


    • A confirmation/warning dialog box may appear when starting, installing or uninstalling software.
      This dialog box appears when administrative rights are required to perform a task.
      When you are logged on to an administrator account, click Yes (or Continue, Allow) to continue.
      Some applications require an administrator account to continue. In such cases, switch to an administrator account, and restart the operation from the beginning.
  2. Perform the uninstaller

    Click Start. When the confirmation message appears, click Yes.
    When all the files have been deleted, click Complete.

    The deletion of the printer driver is complete.
