There is extra software, MP Navigator EX, that is required for the Autoscan feature, but for manual wireless scanning, all that is required is a good connection. Wireless networks work flawlessly for printing, but they often lose their connection for scanning. When this occurs, the remedy is simply to reinstall the complete printer drivers. Canon has not updated the drivers for Windows 10. You can download the Windows 8 drivers from this link:

To guarantee a clean installation, it is best to go to Control Panel > Programs and uninstall all the software programs for the Pixma MG62210 printer before installing the drivers, but you do not need to do this each time you lose your scan-to-computer function.
