Print driver installation


I downloaded the print driver installation for a MG2520 printer to my computer and plugged the printer into my computer.  The installation started but then I got a message that the printer was not being found.  The instructions told me to disconnect and then reconnect the printer.  I did this but don't know whether this fixed the problem.  The installation reportedly is still underway but how do I know as the message saying the printer is not located is still shown?
