Installing MG2522 on Windows 10 S-mode

This printer shows on the Canon website it is compatible with computers running windows 10 in S-mode, but I am unable to get it to install.  However, the scanner installed, but not the printer part and I bought this for the printer.  Can anyone help me get this installed, without taking the computer out of S-mode?

Hi weehleshb,

 

If you want to use your PIXMA MG2522 via USB with a Windows 10 S computer, simply plug your device into an available USB port and follow these steps:

 

1.  Open the Control Panel by holding the Windows key and pressing the letter R.

 

2.  In the Run window, type "control panel" (without quotation marks) and click OK.

 

3.  Click Devices and Printers.

 

4.  Click Add a Printer.

 

5.  In the new window that appears, click on your printer and then click Next.

 

A driver will be installed.  When this process has finished, click Finish.

Mine doesn't even bring up the printer when I try to follow those steps. Any other ideas?

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers 3 times and the printer doesn't even show up in the list.  Who can help with this??

Re: Installing MG2522 on Windows 10 S-mode

You can't install the Canon app in S-mode.
You can only install Microsoft Store apps in S-mode.
Canon doesn't have an app in Microsoft Store.
Third-party apps in the store, 'Windows for Scanner' and 'Windows Fax and Scan' have limited functionality.
None of them recognize the scanner function in my Canon 3-in-1 office printer, a big complaint in the reviews.
Why does Microsoft Store feature apps that don't work.

Re: Installing MG2522 on Windows 10 S-mode

I'm wondering if anyone can help with this - I think I have installed my MG2500, it comes up in my list of devices, but says that there is an app for this. Do I still have to do anything? I was able to print a test page, but can't priny anything else. Suggestions?
