You can pin the app in the Start menu for quick access. You can also toggle if you want to send app usage information and learn about the information we collect. If you want to know about the software license, you can click the Show License Information button to read about the license. You can also see the version of this app that is currently running.

If you want to learn more about your printer, you can select that option from the main screen, or you can click the Learn more about your printer  icon.

Select Learn more about your printer (outlined in red) or click the icon on the left (outlined in red)

This screen will show you various programs you can run to make use of your printer. If you don't have a particular program installed, a website will open which will provide more information on the program in question. In some instances (such as clicking Open for PIXMA / MAXIFY Cloud Link), rather than a program opening, a web site will open instead.
