How to Connect My Canon Printer to My Computer?

There can be multiple ways to connect your printer with computer. One of them is the old-school method of using a parallel cable. Nowadays, however, most computers use USB. For connecting using a USB cable, you can simply connect the printer directly to the PC. If the device does not have a USB port, you might need a USB to parallel cable or a USB to PS/2 cable. These are fairly inexpensive to obtain, and you can obtain them at most computer shops.

The second method involves going to the setting of your computer or laptop’s windows. From there go the “Device” and after that select “Printers & Scanner”.

Once you’re there click on “+” to add a new printer or scanner.  And now your computer to the laptop will start looking for all the devices located nearby. Once your printer is detected, follow the on-screen instructions, and both devices will be connected.
