The user manual for the Canon Pixma MX452 printer is available for download on the Canon website. The complete manual is listed as a PDF download. The non-PDF download option is an incomplete version of the manual that requires an Internet connection to access information on advanced features and functions.

The complete manual download includes five sections, each in an individual PDF file. The introduction and overview section explains how to set up the MX452 and install the associated software in order to use the basic functions of the model. Three other PDF files cover advanced printing, scanning and faxing functions, respectively. The fifth file is a troubleshooting guide.
