Installing the Canon printer on the Macbook

Installing the Canon printer on the Macbook is a relatively straightforward process. Here are the steps to follow.

Firstly, you should load the printer with paper and ink and connect the printer to the Mac according to the steps above. Ensure that the printer is turned on. On your Mac, launch system preferences through the Apple menu or by pressing on the icon. Then, click on “Printers and scanners”. Take a look at the status of your printer.
