Windows 10 is a pretty solid operating system, with advance features and easy usability. But as we all know when there is good, the bad also comes along with it. Same is the case with Windows 10, as most people upgraded to it they started having compatibility problems with other software and hardware. One such problem with upgrade is printer support. If you are using Canon printer then make sure to check Canon site first to check the list of products that are not supported in Windows 10, although you will be able to use those products in your previous operating system version. Although, if your printer model is compatible with the latest windows version and still you are facing technical issues then here you might find the solution for your problem.
