Basics of Using a Canon Multifunction

Posted March 3rd, 2015 at 2:34 pm.

The documents and links below will get you started with the most common functions on the Canon MFPs including print, copy, fax, scanning to network drives, cross-campus print-release (secure printing), etc. As a note, different Canon machines provide different functionality (for example, faxing is not available on public Canons); if you are unsure whether your Canon has a particular function, please contact the Help Desk.

Don’t forget, each copier has a Tutorial button right on the screen which can help with copy and fax operations (scanning instructions do not apply as we are using advanced scanning software not included in the tutorials).

If you want to install a print object for a Canon MFP, please continue to this page.
