How To Work With AirPrint on Windows? Tips and Tricks

Thursday, December 9th, 2010

The emergence of wireless technology has become a fad. This has been the case because besides the fact that it’s convenient, it’s also exciting. Who wouldn’t be thrilled when you can surf the net anywhere in the world and now, you can print your files without even connecting your computer to the printer with the use of nettlesome cables, or installing and configuring printer drivers on your computer repeatedly.

If we are enjoying the power of wireless web surfing, today, there’s so much reason to be happy, as wireless printing has come to life. And when we talk about wireless printing, today, it only means one thing: the AirPrint. AirPrint is a service that allows you to print documents, emails, web contents and photos wirelessly over a Wi-Fi connection. You can do it by sending your files directly to printers—given you’re on the same Wi-Fi connection—to do their print job. Although AirPrint works only with Apple iOS device and with a few HP printers, today, the rant among Windows users has been silenced. Now, Windows (Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP) users can also enjoy it.

But how does this work on Windows? Here are tips you might find helpful in enabling AirPrint service on Windows.

Before you can set it up on Windows, a few requirements must be made first. iTunes 10.1, which can be directly downloaded from Apple must be installed on your computer. Network printer sharing must be enabled on your computer. And make sure that you have all the administrative privileges to enable/disable services on your computer. And remember that Airprint wireless printing is only possible if you’re within the same Wi-Fi connection—that is your device and the printer used.

When all of the requirements are done, you may now install the AirPrint extension on your PC. There are a few different installers you can find in the web today. There’s a simple from Javox. There’s Elpamsoft AirPrint Installer, and others. Once an AirPrint installer is downloaded and file is extracted, run the .exe file. And installation is ready to go. In case a Firewall is run on your computer, set AirPrint for Windows to Allow access. Once setup is done, try printing a document (considering both devices are under the same Wi-Fi connection).

Although the process of setting up AirPrint on your PC differs depending on your installer, setting it up is not a problem as most installers come with simple instructions. And while it used to be very difficult to find in the net tips on how to work such service on Windows, now, you can just type AirPrint on Windows on your browser and you’ve got all the control over wireless printing.

Myths and Facts: How Does AirPrint Work?

Thursday, December 9th, 2010

Apple’s iOS 4.2 update comes with AirPrint—free and useful software that allows you to print from your iPad, iPod Touch or iPhone without needing any drivers, wires or cables.

What it is

AirPrint is a multitasking application. It allows you to print your documents in the background. This means that you can browse the web, go through your photos or even continue playing your latest game while printing is going on. This technology, like the multitasking feature, works on the iPad, the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4, and the iPod Touch that is third-generation or later.

This technology is completely wireless. One needs absolutely no wires, drivers or cables to print with AirPrint. One can print anything from photos and e-mails to notes and web content. Your gadget will automatically search your wireless network for printers that are AirPrint-enabled.

AirPrint is accommodating in the sense that it can be used with various applications. Whether you are surfing the Internet on Safari, experimenting with iWork or using a third-party application, the chances are high that you’ll be able to print with no difficulty. Print out your movie ticket or make copies of your presentation using your favorite Apple gadget.

This technology is both useful and user-friendly. The toolbar or navigation bar presents you with options such as how many copies should be printed and what printer the document should be sent to. You’ll also be able to choose from more advanced options such as whether to print single-sided or double-sided, or whether there is a specific range of pages that need to be printed. You simply need to tap the button of your choice, and your printing job will begin.

Apple AirPrint is advanced. You can print more than one item at a time from more than one open application at a time. All your printing jobs will simply make its way to the Print Center queue. You’ll be able to cancel a printing job before it is sent to the printer.

What it is not

AirPrint is not software that will work with printers connected to a computer’s USB port. If you want to use this technology, you will need a wireless connection to a HP printer that supports the software.

AirPrint is not software that the general public can utilize. At the moment, it is only compatible with approximately a dozen wireless printers from HP. However, if you use the software with any of the handful of compatible e-print machines, then it should work flawlessly. These printers are all part of the HP Officejet, Officejet Pro, Photosmart and LaserJet Pro series.

Not all printers compatible with Apple iOS 4.2 are instantly ready to use. Although more than half of these e-print machines need no firmware upgrade, the other printers may require it in order for them to work properly.

Printing from Your iPhone: Useful Tools

Thursday, December 9th, 2010

Much has been written and debated about the ability (or inability) to print from iPhone. There was a lot of controversy in the beginning because the iPhone didn’t let users do what they wanted to do with any measure of ease, like connecting to USB printers. Printing was as tedious as uploading photos taken on the iPhone to a PC or laptop just so the users can print them.

Print Apps

There are some solutions for printing from iPhone. These solutions will have their own strengths and limitations, so you need to research each and pick which one fits your printing preferences and habits.


AirPrint comes FREE with iOS 4.2.  Those with the recommended compatible printers and the correct Wi-Fi connectivity you are all set for true wireless printing. There are no additional software to download, no drivers to install and no cables to connect. For now, only HP has come up with ePrint-enabled printers that will work with AirPrint.

HP ePrint Enabled Printers:

  • Photosmart eStation (C510)
  • HP ENVY100 e-AiO (D410)
  • Photosmart Premium Fax e-AiO (C410)
  • Photosmart Premium e-AiO (B310)
  • Photosmart Plus e-AiO (B210)
  • Photosmart Wireless e-AiO (B110) (EU, AP)
  • Photosmart e-AiO (D110) (Americas)

HP Printers That Require Firmware Upgrade:

HP Printers with Firmware Upgrade Available December 27, 2010:

  • Officejet Pro 8500A e-AiO
  • Officejet Pro 8500A Premium e-AiO
  • Officejet Pro 8500A Plus e-AiO
  • Officejet 7500A Wide Format e-AiO
  • Officejet 6500A Plus e-AiO
  • Officejet 6500A e-AiO


From your Mac, running Printopia will share all available printers to your iOS 4.2 iPhone. It could be an inkjet connected to your Mac, a laser printer connected to your Mac via router or a network printer. As long as your Mac can print to it, Printopia can share it to your iPhone.

Download first a demo version of Printopia before purchasing. If it is a better tool for your printing setup, then go ahead and install it.

Print Magic

This printing application is simple. It connects via Wi-Fi to most printers in your network, or any shared printer on your Mac. There is no guarantee however as they cannot predict all possible printer combinations the world can have in their homes,  so it is best to do a trial run first before purchasing your Print Magic.

One thing to consider, this application does not support documents or email attachments.

Not-So-Positive Feedback

Some who tested printing from their iPhones mentioned that printing was on the slow side, but were quick to offer that it might be a problem with their own printer settings. Test it for yourself.

There are also some observations that the printouts tend to be wet when the paper comes out, and that print quality isn’t very good. Again, they suggest checking your color settings and not to be too quick to blame it on the print application, the printer or your iPhone itself.

Considering how diverse setups can be to be able to print from iPhone, we cannot say with any degree of certainty which particular printing application is perfect for your needs. They either work only with a certain brand of printers, or they can only print photos or can print anything except photos, or they need additional software to work. Whichever is the case, you will surely find one which is most suitable.
