Android KitKat: How to print an office document from your smartphone

Recently, I ran through how to set up a wireless printer to work with an Android smartphone running KitKat.


But now your printer is set up, how would you go about – say – printing a Word document you’ve saved in your Dropbox account? It’s easier than you might think.


From the home screen, tap Quick Office icon, then tap the browse icon. This will bring up a list of your accounts, including Drop Box, Google Docs, and your SD card if you have one in your phone.


This should bring up a list of the files in your account. Tap the Word document you want to print.


Your file should load. Tap the menu icon in the top right hand side corner of your screen and then tap print.


Finally, tap print at the bottom. Your document should now print.
