Canon offers a few different ways to connect your printer wirelessly. You can connect using Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, or even an Ethernet cable. If you want to connect using Bluetooth, you’ll need to make sure that your printer and laptop are compatible with Bluetooth technology.
Once you have confirmed that they are, you can follow the instructions in the Canon manual to pair the two devices. Wi-Fi is probably the most popular way to connect a Canon printer to a laptop. Most newer printers come with built-in Wi-Fi capabilities, so all you’ll need to do is find the right setting on your computer and enable it.
Again, consult your Canon manual for specific instructions. If you’re not interested in using either of these wireless technologies, you can always just connect your printer to your laptop using an Ethernet cable. This is probably the simplest way to go about it, but it does require that you have an available Ethernet port on both devices.
