Devices like the iPhone, iPad and Android phones provide a tremendous amount of functionality from creating documents to watching movies. However one function that has been oddly missing is printing capability. Tech columnist Amit Agarwal provides a brilliant and simple solution, send a document to your Dropbox and it automatically prints to your printer.

The steps are very simple.

  1. Download and install Dropbox on the computer that your printer is connected to.
  2. Install Dropbox on your mobile device.
  3. Download and run a small VBS script which is available at Amit Agarwal’s website Digital Inspiration.
  4. Upload the document you want to print to the PrintQueue folder in your Dropbox folder.

For detailed instructions and the VBS script visit Digital Inspiration.
