PIXMA TS7720 Which apps can be removed?

Is the following software still needed after printer install?

I'm recently retired (one year ago) and for the first time in forever, I needed to print something at home without having the office printer anymore... so I broke down and bought a Canon PIXMA TS 7720.  Small but perfect for my limited needs.

It has been over 15 years since I've had a printer installed on my Mac, so I know what I see is something different from back then.  The printer connects wireless to the Mac (not sure if that matters for what I am about to ask).

There are two new items in the Mac Finder that are showing up alongside my various drives.  I believe the "mms2-mac-102_0_1-ea21_3" was for install only, and I am assuming that it can now be removed, correct?

The other item is "Canon Inkjet Smart Connect".  Is this something required if I occasionally just send a PDF wirelessly to the printer?

Asking simply because I like to keep the clutter off of my Mac.  The two items are the silver drives in the image below.Screenshot 2024-02-22 at 9.45.55 AM.png

Thanks!

Yes, those items are virtual disk images presumably from .dmg files that contain the installation software.  You can either single-click on those items, then choose "Eject" from the File menu within Finder.  Or, right-click (Control-click) on those items and choose the "Eject <filename>" item.  Or, click and drag those icons to the Trash (if you do this, the Trash icon will change to an Eject icon).

Yessir, I know how to remove them, I just wasn't sure if they were required at this point.  Since this is just an entry level printer, install was shockingly clunky and slow, so I didn't want to go through all of that again.

Thanks for the quick reply, Ricky!
