Have new win 10 desktop pc want to set up my MG6821 printer (previously on a win 7 pc). In drivers page I find 3 that work with it. The recommended driver is a full driver and software with over 48MB. There is an XPS driver at 19MB which I am considering but wondering which I should choose. Will the XPS driver do the basics of print, scan and copy or do I need the full Canon software as well? Are there any caveats if I choose the XPS driver?
Would appreciate any advice and insights,
Go with the XPS and MG optional drivers.
The XPS driver offers support for 16bit gradient printing over the standard 8bit offered in the full drivers package.
This won't be noticeable in text, but if you print graphs of pictures, they will look better. Windows 10 will have no problems using the XPS driver.
