Printer driver & software installation

I recently did a Fresh Install of Windows 10 Pro 64Bit & now I need to reinstall my printer driver & software.  I have a PIXMA MG7120 Inkjet Photo All-In-One printer & this is the software I am planning to install:

Basic On-Screen Manual
Easy-PhotoPrint EX
Easy-WebPrint EX
MP Drivers
My Image Garden
My Printer
Quick Menu
 
Do I still need to install:
Easy-WebPrint EX since it is a plug-in for IE7 & I now use IE11?
Quick Menu since it allows for easy application starts & manuals supplied w/the printer?

Also, I forgot if I attach the printer to the computer THEN install the driver & software, or install the driver & software THEN attach the printer to the computer?  Does it matter in what order I install the driver & software (I assume the driver gets installed 1st)?

[ Edited ]

Latest drivers are HERE. [link corrected]

 

Basic rule of thumb for install. 

 

Network Connection: Connect printer, then install software.

 

USB Connection:

 

Install drivers, connect printer when prompted

 

Windows10 will likely include some basic level printer driver for the printer, but if you want a full featured driver, you can install the package above.  It will likely skip the webprint EX if not compatible (or needed) with IE11.
