Third party Startup software for retired Power Shot A590 IS

I received a Retired Power Shot A590 IS but do not know if the current software supports Windows or Mac. Canon has retired that camera and no longer provides driver/software support. Is there a third party provider for startup discs or software downloads? The camera works but I don't know how to tell whether it's been setup for Windows or Mac (preferred). Was able to get a PDF user guide but no apparent options for the Mac startup software. Any sources other than Canon? Thanks in advance 🙂

Hi Norm, Got the Canon OEM cable recommended for my A590 and it's working perfectly. No issues so far. The software downloads were file management apps which I don't needs as I use Apple Photos for that purpose. Thanks again for your help.

There AREN'T charging-only USB Mini-B cables (connector that the camera has). All USB A-to-Mini B cables carry data. It is MICRO-B cables that could be charging-only, depending on what they were provided with.
