In the Operating system box, click the down arrow and select your operating system. If you are on a Windows 7 or 8 PC. It will most likely be a 64 bit PC, so select the Windows 64bit OS driver package. If you are on a Windows XP PC, you will want to select the 32 bit version If you are not sure what version you have, the next 2 slides will show you how to find out. You can skip the next 2 slides if you already know.
To find out how many bits you have, click start, then right click on computer. Then click properties.
The following screen will open up. Under “system type” it will say how many bits you have.

There should be 2 folders in this zip folder. Double click on the one that says “WHQL PCL6_PS_PPD printer driver”. This will open up to the next screen.

Click on the configuration tab as shown on the left and it will take you to a screen as seen on the left. Click on “Auto Configuration” and a short loading screen will appear.
When that loading screen is finished, you will see a pop up as seen here. Click on the buttons that the hands or arrows point to. On your MX-C300W, you should have only 1 button. Then click “ok”
Click “Apply” and then click on the “Advanced” tab as shown here. Next we are going to default the printer to black and white.

Click “Print test page” to send a test page to the printer. Congratulations. Your PC is now set up with the printer!
