Canon MG5420 Printer - No drivers? (Scan utility?)

dathaeus

I am pretty sure the MG5420 had software when we first installed it a few years ago.

Now I go to the Canon website and the main driver package is nowhere to be found, only their Image Garden software and something else insignificant.

I cannot find the Scan Utility software either.

What gives?

Thanks for letting us know what Canon product you've got. The PIXMA MG5420 is an older model which we have retired. While that means that Canon USA no longer offers direct support or updated software for it, your friends here in the Canon Community are welcome to offer suggestions!

You can also speak with a Canon Upgrade Program specialist to help you score a modern replacement that would meet your current needs at a discount. You can reach them weekdays and Saturdays at 1-866-443-8002.

Hope this helps!

So you are telling me no more drivers for this printer from Canon anymore? I have seen tons of old models still have drivers available on your site, what do you mean, why would you take driver software OUT and leave in all the other useless software?

Greetings,

Can you share which OS you are running and want to use the printer with?

If windows 10/11, USB or Wireless:

If MAC, the printer does not need drivers, but will only operate with limited functionality.

Win 11, so this works for Win 11?

Greetings,

Yes.  Others have confirmed the Windows10 driver works for W11.  Grab it below.
