Slow printing from Canon G7020 Windows 10

Recently my Canon G7020 printer has started to print very slowly.  It is right next to the router so it is not having a problem picking up the Wifi signal.

I've had this printer for 3 years and I love it.

Do you have any suggestions that a low-tech person can follow to fix it?

Very recently my Canon G7020 printer has started to print very slowly.  It is right next to the router so it is not having a problem picking up the WiFi signal.

I've tried rebooting the printer, running maintenance to clean it, turning off quiet mode

It is very frustrating

Do you have any suggestions that a low-tech person can follow to fix it?

I would very much appreciate any assistanc.

Thank you

Greetings,

Does "started to print very slowly" mean the time that elapses between you pressing the print button and the printer starting to print, or the amount of time a print takes to complete once the job starts?
