I added my Canon printer to the devices in Windows 8, but my Canon does not show up on any print menu, either in Windows (e.g. printing from the desktop) or Office 2013.

Hello Sandra! Thank you for your question. I am a licensed printer professional with over ten years of experience, and I will be assisting you today.

I'm sorry about the issue. What's the exact model of your Canon printer? How did you add your canon printer to the devices? Does it show any other printer or device in any print menu?

Please let me know. Thank you

I have found the windows 8 driver for your printer model. Please click on the website below (and select your operating system windows 8 if it's not selected yet), then click on Drivers, then you can download and install the item "MP610 series MP Driver Ver. 1.01 (Windows 8 x64..."

Does that work? Or if you'd like to, we can set up a remote session, so I can do all these steps, so you don't have to do it yourself.
