Canon PIXMA MG4260 Software, Driver and User Manual Download

Canon PIXMA MG4260 Software, Driver and User Manual Download For Windows, Mac, Linux – If you are looking for a new printer that has quality and also ease of access, you might wanna try PIXMA MG4260. This printer has a different design with its former models, where you can find the control panel on the bottom part of the top. This printer has the control panel on the left side with LCD display that you can push out. Too bad that Canon still uses the four ink color system with two cartridges for this model, 1 for black ink and the other for the three other colors. This kind of cartridge will be a burden when its time to replace or refill it.

Canon MG4260 has a lot of features and also functions. One of the most useful features is the wireless connection option. With this option, you can share your printer with multiple users with ease, without having to worry about cables and moving here and there. All you need to do is to connect your computer to the printer using WiFi.

This Canon Pixma MG 4260 also allows you to use duplex printing, to be able to print on both sides of the documents. There are two slots of memory card if you need one. One for Memory Card and the other for SD card.
