I have the MP 980 printer, paid a lot for it and it's been some years now that I can't use it since operating system moved up to Windows 10. It seems outrageous that Canon will leave customers in the lurch like this. I've searched once again in a last ditch attempt before having to get rid of this expensive piece of equipment, but have come up empty. Does anyone have a way for me to use my printer??? I've tried downloading other drivers and tried selecting compatibility but Windows 10 doesn't even show on the list. I also tried the compatibility troubleshooter, no go.
What a waste if I have to get rid of this printer
Thank you in advance!!

You are correct, the PIXMA MP980 is not supported with Winodws 10.
You can use the Windows 7 drivers from our web site to install on Windows 10 and get your printer working with your computer.
To access the driver download, please use the following link:
Once on that page, select Windows 7 or Windows 7x64 from the Operating system drop down box and driver (MP980 series MP Driver Ver. 1.03) will appear.

Thanks for your advice. Unfortunately I already gave away the printer because I didn't think I could use it anymore. I had tried to download different versions of Windows before doing that; none of them would install.
I wish I had known about the upgrade before giving the printer away. Would I still be eligible?
