Please make sure your canon printer is a default printer for that you can go to the control panel then devices and printer and then select your printer and make a right-click and set as default. This is one of the main reasons by which your canon printer not printing.

Print spooler service.
It is a very common problem if your print spooler service stopped then you cannot take a print from your canon printer for that you need to open “RUN” box by pressing windows key +R and in that open box you need to type Services.msc then check for print spooler services and also check for status and make it running if it is already in running condition that means the services is running okay.

Cancel all the documents.
