Printing from Desktop Anywhere

On Desktop Anywhere you can either print to a printer you have set up on your client or to MyPrint.

Printing to a Local Printer (Client Printing)

If you normally print to a printer attached to your laptop or other device, that will be the default printer in Desktop Anywhere. For example - if your laptop is set to print to your home printer, that's what Desktop Anywhere will do.

If you want to print to a different local printer, you'll need to change the printer your laptop or other device normally prints to.  For example, if you are using Windows 7, choose 'Devices and Printers' from the Start menu of your laptop (not the Desktop Anywhere start menu), and set an existing printer as the default, or click 'Add a printer' to add a new one.

You can change the printer while you're using Desktop Anywhere, but you might need to log off and back on again to see the changes.

On some devices, including iPads and Android tablets, you can't print to a local printer.

Printing using MyPrint

You can print to any MyPrint printer from Desktop Anywhere.
