Galaxy Tab A: How do I print images or documents directly from my Samsung Galaxy Tab A?

Last Update Date : Apr 13. 2018

Printing

Print images and documents to Samsung printers and other compatible printers (not included). The print function, available as a menu option within some applications, lets you print directly from your device to a printer on the same Wi-Fi network.

Very important: Your tablet can only print documents on a Wi-Fi printer (wireless). If you need a cable to print a document from your computer, it means that your printer is not a Wi-Fi printer. Therefore, it will not be possible to print documents from your tablet using such a printer. No cable will allow you to connect your tablet to a printer.

Note: Screens and settings available may vary depending on your Canadian wireless service provider and your software version.

Turn On Printing Services

Note: The following steps need to be performed only the first time you want to print a document from your tablet. Once your tablet is connected to your printer, the setting will be saved.

1 From a Home screen, touch Apps > Settings .
2 Touch More connection settings > Printing.
3 Touch Download plug-in.
