Changing Canon Printer Driver Default Settings

Updated: Nov 21

Here's a short video that shows you how to change your default settings to make your printing experience more effective to your needs.



Did you know...

you can install multiple printer drivers for the same copier/printer? I like having multiple printer drivers depending on the settings I use. For instance, I have one printer driver with default settings called "Regular Prints" so I don't have to select 1-sided, B&W, collated paper in Drawer 1 all the time - it's just there and it works! I also have another printer driver with default settings to the second drawer whenever I need to print on loose carbon copy paper. If you haven't seen the post on how to install a printer driver for Windows, check out this post. Repeat the steps to get another multiple printer drivers, then use the video above to set each one to your use. Just don't forget to rename the printer drivers appropriately!


Only for Windows

These instructions work for Windows 7 - 10. Windows 11 doesn't allow the run command called "control printers" anymore. As a work around, you can type in "control", then select "view devices and printers" under the "Hardware and Sound" option.
