Have you downloaded the latest driver?

Yes, I downloaded MP driver. Is XPS driver better or preferred?

XPS driver is for special 16-bit printing. Certain Microsoft programs use it. System should work fine without it.

The MP driver is indicated to be W11 compatible; not sure why it's not working.

You could try calling canon at 1-800-OK-CANON.

After troubleshooting and downloading the drivers several times, MX922 now works with Windows 11 and USB cable. However, my PRO-100 only works via Wi-Fi, but not with USB.

What troubleshooting did you do?  I have downloaded the drivers numerous times, even bought a new USB cable with a 3c connector - still nothing.  Thanks

I tried many troubleshooting sites (Dell, Canon, Windows), so I do not know what suddenly worked. I have a feeling that loading the original driver (from MX922 CD) worked and new 2021 versions did not.
