Pixma MP560 and Windows 11

I have a MP560 that was purchased by me in 2010 and it is still in brand new condition and works great!!

Problem----I just purchased a new Dell Laptop with Windows 11 and I cannot get it to recognize the printer because the driver will not install--All because Canon no longer supports this printer.

Is there a way to make it work? I LOVE this printer/scanner because of the individual ink tanks and really don't want to buy another printer because this one still works beautifully.

Thanks in advance

Kathy

Hi gmkat,

Please try using this link to download the drivers for your PIXMA MP560:

https://canoncanada.custhelp.com/app/browse/a_status/published/channelRecordID/DRIVERS_AND_SOFTWARE/...

Please choose Windows 10 from the drop down. Please note, the PIXMA MP560 is not supported with Windows 11, and installing this would be done at your own risk, without support.

Did you try installing the W10 driver? They frequently work with W11.
