The Canon PIXMA MP287 driver is a free application provided by Canon itself to help make it easier for users to control the various features and functions that are in the printer to run properly.
Without a driver, some functions and features of the Canon MP287 Printer usually cannot be controlled via a computer, even in some cases explaining that the computer cannot detect the printer at all because there is no printer driver.
Therefore it is important to install the Canon MP287 Printer driver before using it for printing so that all the features and functions embedded in it can be controlled and run optimally.
Actually, Canon Official has provided the driver CD that was included in the box at the first time of purchase, but because it is rarely used the CD is usually lost or even damaged by itself, I have also experienced the same thing.
If you are experiencing this problem, don’t worry because you can still install the driver without the CD using the installation file provided below.
By using the installation file, the Canon MP287 printer installation process will be easier and you can even install it directly on your computer.
