First, we have bad news. Canon LBP2900B is an old, 2005 printer so Canon didn’t update the driver to use with Windows 11. However, for some, the solution was to install the Windows 10 (64-bit) driver. Therefore, the best option is to try the first solution below and select Windows 10 (64-bit) from the list of options.
