Specs: WINDOWS 7 ULTIMATE, 1 GB
I needed to get an update from Windows to install a printer. Can you tell me where this file is downloaded to so that I can make a copy of the folder with the new driver in it? thanks in advance!

Printer drivers come from the printer maker. You go to the makers website and download the drivers for your model, the files go to your download folder and you can make a copy to backup to an external device.
After downloading, install the driver.

canon does not have a driver on the website - they told me to get it from windows update. which i did and it prints fine when plugged in directly. i need the driver again to complete the wizard to set up the printer on a xp network though.
