pixma mx870 and window 11


hello i have an pixma mx870 printer and a new window 11 desktop which I want to connect through the wireless network.  I noticed when looking for the drivers that there were none available for windows 11.  I downloaded the win10 in hopes they would work but they didn't. Is there a work around or will cannon make a driver for win 11?

thank you for your assistance,

Interesting for any problem you have the same answer, BUY NEW. Maybe try to get a driver for win 11???


Had the same problem with my Canon MX870/ Windows 11. Fixed the problem by downloading the following driver .. webpage .. MX870 series MP Driver Ver.1.06 (Windows) | Canon Australia 

Above should take you to :

Thankfully, saved $$'s not having to buy another printer!


doesn't say win 11


I think Canon needs to make sure there is a windows 11 print driver available now that almost all new computers are windows 11.


No, all they say is buy a new printer. Thanks for nothing Canon

The link provided by Gizmo does not allow download. However this one works:

You should state that you are located in USA, then download the driver. Even though it is meant for Win 10, it works for Win 11.

Thanks for the link.  Odd thing is I had a Win 11 laptop with my MX870 working perfectly on it.  That laptop was stolen and I ran into this problem getting the exact same model setup!  Not sure why my LIKE is not showing up.  

This link worked for me.  Thanks for finding a solution and posting it.

I also had a window 11 laptop that I set up 2 years ago, loaded the drivers and prints fine.  Sad that they stopped supporting in US.
