    Canon MP240 Scanner No Driver (Unsupported)

    My canon printer isn't supported by Windows 10. Troubleshooting it just tells me there is no drivers. It prints fine, but i cannot use the scanner. Is there any way i can get the scanner to work, more specifically in gIMP?

    Check whether the Windows 7 driver will work. It might work, but no guarantee. Then see whether it works with Paint.

    You are welcome. I am glad you can scan now.

    Another fix is to try the drivers for a similar scanner as I did with my Epson Perfection 1200 scanner - see How to Install Old Epson Perfection 1200 Scanner in Windows 10

    Thanks, WHS, that solution was so brief, slick and to-the-point that I immediately joined TenForums
