Pixma Pro-10 Disable Printer's Color Management

I have a Pixma Pro-10 on a Macbook Pro running Sierra (10.12.6). Everything is working fine except I want to print through Photoshop CC 2018 not Print Studio Pro. I have been all over the internet searching for how to accomplish this. In one thread (March of 2017) it suggested going in to My Printer. Unfortunately My Printer is a Windows function and someone on the thread said there is no My Printer for Mac, but they stopped there with no further information. So, how in the heck do I disable the printer's color management, or do I even have to if I am printing through Photoshop CC? Thank you for any light you can shed on this.

In the Mac system color management is automatically turned off when you select "Printer Manages Color". (Actually what happens is the ColorSync option is selected by the software and grayed out so you cannot change it.)

Got it. Thank you so much. This is the first time I have printed in color from my Mac. I was previously using a PC so I am still trying to find my way around.

Mine is greyed if I use Printer or Photoshop manages Colors. I want to access Color Options but it is disabled no matter what I choose.

Welcome to the forum. 

Check that you have the Canon IJ Series version of the printer and not the AirPrint version.
