Printer software/drivers. Switching from MG5220 to TS6420a

Should I delete all of my printer software/drivers/photo/Navigator features before installing a new printer on my laptop. They are both Canon. The old one is my favorite printer MG5220 and the new one is a TS6420a.

Thanks,

Phil

Hi, parmour!

The answer to this will depend on if your old printer is still operational and going to be used. If not, there's no reason to keep those things you've mentioned. If the MG5220 IS still operational, keep the old software or the old printer won't work without re-installing it. The new drivers and software for your new printer can co-exist on your computer, but you will need to make sure you are selecting the correct printer when printing.

We hope this helps!

Greetings,

Will you continue to use the old printer?  If not, then I would remove the old drivers and software.  There is no need to keep them.
