     You can set the quiet mode from the operation panel of the printer or the Canon IJ Printer Assistant Tool.
    No matter how you use to set the quiet mode, the mode is applied when you perform operations from the operation panel of the printer or printing from the computer.

  4. Check that the printer is on and then click OK.
    Click OK when the confirmation message appears.
