Connect the USB cable to the Printer

Connect the flat end of the USB cable (1) to the computer (type-A receptacle). Connect the other end of the cable to the printer (2) (type-B receptacle). Note: The USB connector will only fit in one-direction into the type-B receptacle on the printer.

Since the scanner does not work with Windows 10, I would request you to install the driver in compatibility mode and check if it helps. Right click on the setup file of the driver and select “Properties”. Select “Compatibility” Tab.
You may need to update your printer/scanner driver. Connectivity is a possible issue – make sure any cables are secure, such as a USB connection. If your connection is wireless, be sure your Canon scanner is connecting to your WiFi – there should be an indication of communication on your scanner panel.
The easiest way to connect the Canon printer to the computer is via a USB cable. It`s the traditional method of connecting devices. One end of the USB remains connected to the printer, and the other must be connected to the computer`s USB port.
On the taskbar, select the Search icon, type Printers in the search bar, and then select Printers & scanners from the search results to open the Printers & scanners system setting. Next to Add a printer or scanner, select Add device.
Change your USB Cable or the USB Port

Alternatively, you can also use a USB cable recommended by Canon. If it`s not the cable, then check your USB port. If your camera doesn`t connect to your PC, then try plugging it again into a different USB terminal. Most PCs and laptops feature multiple USB ports.

If a Firewall on your computer is active, it may be rejecting the necessary network connection needed for the network scanning software to operate properly. Disable the Firewall on your computer and try the network scanning again. Temporarily change your firewall/security settings to allow network connection.
Select Start , then select Settings > Devices > Printers & scanners . Scroll down to Related Settings and select Print server properties. Select the Drivers tab, and see if your printer is listed. If it is, you`re all set.
With the device switched on navigate to the `set up` menu then select `Wireless LAN set up`. Then choose your wireless access point or wireless router from the list, enter your password then press `end set up`. One the flashing blue wireless light goes solid blue, you`re connected.
