Canon Quick Menu

What is the Quick Menu?

Canon Quick Menu

Canon Quick Menu is a utility software that makes it easy to scan from your Windows or Macintosh computer. This Canon software is efficient and reliable to give you a convenient access point for applications and documentation that is provided with Canon printers. This allows you to launch apps and manuals that come with your printer easily and also quickly access product information online. Installation of the Quick Menu software is optional, but to maximize your PIXMA printer, this is recommended.

Also, with My Image Garden installed, you will be able to enjoy image slideshows through the image display that is on your desktop. To be able to enjoy My Image Garden, you must first download and install it.

Note: Please note that Solution Menu EX has now been replaced with Quick Menu.
