    Hey guys,

    Looking at a wireless printer. My question is, can I print wirelessly from my PC? NOT just wirelessly from a tablet or phone?


    Thanks.

    Yeah should be fine
    Just go to printers/devices
    Add a network printer
    Pick it from listed printer
    It will install driver
    My partners forever printing stuff
    From a laptop

    One more thing @Mcnumpty2323 the website says it comes with FINE ink cartridges? What are they? Dumbed down versions of a full cartridge??

    Believe they are specific to canon
    The print heads in the cartridge
    Or something
    I only use Epson due to
    Availability of cheap non Epson inks
    So not too savvy on Canon printers

    Bought a wireless printer. Is there an easy / quick way to setup with pc?

    I knows there is software but I don’t want my pc filled with lots of ***** bloatware!

    Only need the driver
    Any extra software /bloat is optional
    With Epson at least
    Other makers not sure if can download the drivers separately
