If you’re using a Canon MX340 printer, it’s essential that you have the latest correct printer driver. This article will show you how to download and update your printer driver quickly and easily.
Why you need the Canon MX340 driver?
Driver, or device driver, is a program that makes your computer and hardware devices attached work together. A driver runs on your operating system, and enables it to communicate with the hardware devices you use.
Your printer won’t fully function if its driver hasn’t been properly installed on your computer. Printer issues such as blank page printing, error code messages, etc. also occur when your printer driver is corrupted or outdated. So, we always recommend you keep your Canon MX340 driver updated for security and stability.
How to get the latest correct Canon MX340 driver?
There are two ways to update your Canon MX340 driver:
Option 1 – Manually– You’ll need some computer skills and patience to update your drivers this way, because you need to find exactly the right the driver online, download it and install it step by step.
Option 2 – Automatically (Recommended)– This is the quickest and easiest option. It’s all done with just a couple of mouse clicks – easy even if you’re a computer newbie.
Option 1 – Download and install the driver manually
Canon keeps updating drivers. To get them, you need to go to the Canon support website, find the drivers corresponding with your specific flavor of Windows version (for example, Windows 32 bit) and download the driver manually.
Once you’ve downloaded the correct drivers for your system, double-click on the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions to install the driver.
Option 2 – Automatically update the Canon MX340 driver
If you don’t have the time, patience or computer skills to update the Canon MX340 driver manually, you can do it automatically with Driver Easy.
Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct drivers for it. You don’t need to know exactly what system your computer is running, you don’t need to risk downloading and installing the wrong driver, and you don’t need to worry about making a mistake when installing.
You can update your drivers automatically with either the FREE or the Pro version of Driver Easy. But with the Pro version it takes just 2 clicks:
1) Download and install Driver Easy.
2) Run Driver Easy and click the Scan Now button. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers.
3) Click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system (this requires the Pro version – you’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All).
