You said you have a G7X, not a G7X Mark II, so THIS PAGE might be of more use.
You'll notice there are instructions on how to transfer photos from your camera to a Windows computer, and that process involves using the Canon software called the WiFi Connection Setup. It also talks about how to access your WPS PIN via the camera's menus.

Your link went to the G7X. I do have a G7X Mark II (apologies for the confusion). That video is here. I'd watched that video several times and my experience matched it until 4:58, at which point my PC did not make the "connection noise," didn't ask what I wanted to do when the device connected, and the camera continued to display "Connecting" as shown at 4:32 (until it timed out).
HOWEVER, on a whim I ran the Windows 10 Troubleshoot program and chose Hardware and Devices. It reported a problem with the Canon driver, did some magic, prompted me to reboot, and voila! The next time I went through the steps it worked!
Thanks for your, and others, assistance! Although those suggestions weren't the solution, they kept me hunting until I (er, the Troubleshoot program) discovered the faulty driver. And FWIW, I had removed the device from the Devices and Printers dialog a dozen times (although it was still displayed in that dialog after removing it--a sign of trouble I expect) and checked to make sure it wasn't in the Device Manager (it wasn't). In any case, I'm up an running.
