I have a problem with buttons on scanner LiDE 120. I cant use tham for installed scan utility. I installed it on many machines but only once I was successful with button setting.
I tried latest drivers from canon support with no result.
I know where to connect the utility to button, but I cant choose that.
Scan utility is installed:
Could anybody help me please?
Thank you. Tom

Unfortunetely the procedure above didnt solve my problem. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. Usually it works on new installed machine. On others old machines Im changing for old LiDE110 with canon printer LBP7100. I tried uninstall old drivers and install only new LiDE120 - buttons didnt work. I tried install first LiDE110 and canon printer on new installed machine and then install LiDE120 and sometimes works. Everything I do as administrator. Does anybody have a tip please?

Yes, ditch the LIDE 120 and buy a non-Canon item. Generally, Canon hardware is OK, but their software producers are becoming demented. I have the LIDE 120 and a Pixma 4750 printer; I have, after some months of use, no end of trouble getting them to do what I want.
I have just copied, using the front button, an A4 poster. The result was an A5 part of it printed on A4 paper. Apparently I should have fiddled about with the settings before pressing the button. That means every time you simply want a quick copy of something you have to check the settings.
The "My Image Garden" route is hardly intuitive. Again, I spend more time changing settings than I do on the scanning.
My LIDE 90, not compatible with Windows 10, had a simpler, more useful, interface.
As soon as I can afford it both are going in the bin, to be replaced by other makes.

Actually, that did not solve it for me.
But after a little bit of searching, I found out a solution that should always work - worked for me on my Canon Lide 120.
I thought I post this here, so that other people profit from it also - although I must say, I would expect Canon to come up with a decent piece of software that works reliably.
DISCLAIMER: What I am going to explain involves direct changes of your Windows registry. That's a bit like an open-heart-surgery. If you are not careful, you can break your system. Don't blame me, if that happens.
Canon ships a software called IJ Scan Utility. If you install the scanner drivers, this is installed, too.
This tool is supposed to fire up, when you press one of the scanner buttons. Once it fired up, it is going to execute one of the "rules" defined in Canon's quick menu settings, where you configure what should happen, when the buttons are pressed.
If all things were as they should be, there would be entries in your Windows registry that register IJ Scan Utility as a so-called Autoplay Handler for your scanner's buttons using the Microsoft STI Still Image Application API.
Since these registry keys are either missing or not properly set, I will describe how to do that manually.
A big thank you to Matteo Rossi, whose post led me to the right direction.
So, let's get started.
That's it. You should be good to go now. And when you press a button on the scanner, whatever you configured in Canon's Quick Menu should be executed. E.g. if you press the copy button, the scanner should scan a document and then automatically send it to your selected printer.
Hope this helps.
