iPads – printing at home

YES, you can print from your ipad at home, but you must have a wireless network active at the house, and your ipad must be connected to it.


If you have an Airprint-capable printer with a wireless option, your iPad should be able to see the printer.


If you have a Mac desktop running 10.6  or newer, you can purchase and install  HandyPrint [CLICK HERE]. That software turns your Mac into an Airprint server, so the iPad can see the printer.


If you have a desktop running Windows 7 or newer,  CLICK HERE for an article about setting up your machine. It does involve downloading  Airprint Service Installer – but the article walks you through the process.
