Printer and scanner drivers for Mac If you have an older printer that doesn't support driverless technology, your Mac might automatically install the driver software needed to use that device. Many printers and scanners use driverless technologies such as AirPrint or IPP Everywhere, which don't require additional drivers on your Mac. Effortlessly set up your Canon PIXMA MX490 printer to print on a wireless network from a Mac. Visit the Canon website for more How-To Video tutorials.

If your business changes printers or you need to reinstall your existing Canon printer on a Mac, you must first uninstall the current Canon drivers. If you have unused printer drivers on your system, employees may not know which printer to use, resulting in both lost documents and productivity. Uninstalling the Canon driver from your Mac completely removes the printer from the system, preventing confusion when choosing the correct printer. Avoid having a list of useless printers on your computer by making sure only the correct drivers are installed and functioning.
