How to Print From Your Laptop

Printing from your laptop is extremely practical and easy to learn, especially if you already have your printer set-up and connected. If not, don’t worry. This will cover the basics of that, too. Printing is useful for quickly making hard copies of documents or for printing pictures or other items of interest. These short steps will teach you to print from your laptop.

Step 1: Make sure your printer is set-up and connected to the wireless network. If the printer is not set-up, don’t worry. Find the set-up directions that came with the printer and follow them. Usually this requires inserting a disc into your laptop, which makes the process much easier.

Step 2: If your printer is not wireless, connect to the printer via USB cable. Most modern printers are wireless, but if yours does not have wireless capability, simply plug in the USB cord from the printer to your laptop. There is no advantage to wireless printing, except that it is more convenience. However, both wireless and USB printing offer the same options to the user.

Step 3: Open the document(s) you want to print.

Step 4: Click on FILE > PRINT or press the keys COMMAND + P (on Windows it will be CTRL + P):

Step 5: Adjust settings as needed and click PRINT. Every print menu has a number of options to choose from, from the number of copies to the size of the paper you are printing on. When you’re ready to print, just click PRINT and your documents will begin printing after a few moments.
