Setting up a new printer can sometimes feel daunting, but with the right instructions, it’s actually a pretty simple process With In this post, we’ll walk through everything you need to do to get your new Canon IJ Start printer up and running. Whether this is your first printer or just a new model, I’ll cover all the basics.

Downloading Drivers and Software

The first step is to go to Canon’s website https //ij start cannon and download the printer drivers and installation software for your specific Canon IJ Start model. Make sure to get the version made for your operating system, whether Windows or Mac. Save and run the installer file once it’s completely downloaded. 

Physically Setting Up

Remove all plastic and packaging from the printer. Lift the lid and remove any tape or protective sheets. Load a few sheets of plain paper in the input tray. You may also want to add an ink cartridge at this point if the printer didn’t come with one pre-installed.

Connecting to Your Device

You’ll need to connect one end of the included USB cable into the back of the printer and the other into a USB port on your computer. For wireless setup instructions, refer to the printed manual or Canon’s online guide.

Downloading & Configuring the Printer

Once connected, the installation software should automatically detect and start downloading the necessary printer drivers and configurations. Follow the on-screen instructions to finish installation and wireless setup if desired.

Testing and Troubleshooting

To check if the printer is working properly, open the printer preferences or print queue and try sending a test page to print. Check for errors and look out for any troubleshooting tips mentioned earlier in this guide.
