Dear Client,

thank you very much for your question. My name is***** and I will be assisting you today.

Yes, your Canon printer can print from your laptop. Did you already connect it to your laptop? If you wish, I can set it up for you via a remote-assistance. Just let me know.

Thanks for your patience and best regards,

Lorenz Vauck

Both my laptop and my printer are connected to my wifi; the disc will not let me connect because I have Windows 10 on my laptop which I have not had before.

No I just want to know if it can be done, do I need a new upgraded disc?
Expert:  Lorenz Vauck replied 10 months ago.

Thank you for the feedback, if you wish, I can login to your laptop and troubleshoot it for you. If you want to try it yourself, please let me know if you are using Windows 10 in 32 bit or 64 bit please.

Howcan I get one? Don;t want a contract, etc, etc. Just forget it and don't charge me!!!!!!!
Expert:  Lorenz Vauck replied 10 months ago.

You do not have to get a contract or whatever, I just need to know if your Windows is 32 bit or 64 bit so that I can send you the right driver, since you said you do not want me to fix the issue for you remotely, so we need to work it out by text in which case I need these information so that I can help you. You find out if it is 32 bit or 64 bit if you press [Windows] key + [Pause] key then look at the line "System type". What does it say there please?
