Try overlay printing in preferences. I believe this is the closest to what you are asking for.

SOURCE: Using the Canon PIXMA MP240 printer wirelessly

In order to do this, the laptops have to be able to communicate with each other wirelessly. I.e., you have to have a wireless network set up. If you do, then you are "printer sharing", using one laptop as the 'printer server' (with the printer connected to it) and the other as the 'client'. Step by step instructions are available at this link. Type "printer sharing" in the search box in the center of the screen and click on the Search button. Select the option that matches your requirements.

Press your start button in the bottom left corner of your screen. In the search bar search for devices and printers. Find your printer on the list, if there is a duplicate right click the one that is not set as default and click set as default printer. If this doesn't work go here and download the driver for your printer!

My Canon MX860 always defaults to FAX not PRINT


Use your operating system to choose the printer rather than the driver.
For Windows XP, go Start, Settings, Printers and Faxes. Right click on the printer and choose Set as Default Printer.

My canon mx330 printer ask me this questions when i hit the "print button" it pops up a window that asks"output file name"? I'm suppose to type something inthere?


Check that the printer shown in the print window is the MX330. It sounds like your default printer is set to be a virtual printer such as Microsoft XPS or Acrobat PDF. You need to set the MX330 as your default printer by going to your Printers and Faxes window, right-click on the MX330 printer and select "set as default" on the list there.

Be sure that you are in fact printing to your printer and not to a virtual printer.

Word Perfect may have set the default printer to a PDF or Post Script Printer instead.

Also, try printing from another application to make sure that the printer driver just isn't corrupted.

My Pixma iP8500 will not print. Error message:


Check the following :
1. Check whether the printer you want to print is set as the default printer, by taking the control panel, then choose Printer and right your printer icon, then select 'SET AS DEFAULT PRINTER'.
2. Reconnect the printer cable to the PC. If that doesn't solve, replace the cable with new one.

Chances are you reconnected the printer to a different USB port and your default is still set up for the other port...

Look at your printer settings and chances are it set up the printer again for the new port.

Either change your default printer or move the cable back to the original port.
