    How do I print from my Lumia 950 to my HP officejet which is WiFi enabled. I am able to print to it from my wife's android. The HPAio beta app from the store doesn't work at all. It says looking for printers and nothing happens .

    How can we print from this phone?

    Depends on what you're trying to print. You may not even need the HP app at all because several of the built-in apps have a "file>print" option. Windows 10 Mobile has drivers for numerous printers: support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3083720

    I was able to print from the Office apps by just connecting to the same WiFi network that the printer was on and hitting file>print. The printer showed up as one of the options. However, it seems to be app-based (e.g. no print option in the Photos app, Edge browser, etc.)

    Apps naturally have to implement Windows' print interface, no way around that.

    Mostly i want to print pdfs from my dropbox or emails and pictures. How do i do that from lumia 950. I was able to do this even from my blackberry where apps are not easily available. Surely, with windows there must be a way? What's the point of this HP AiO app - it does nothing other than spinning for a long time looking for my HP printer.

    I would suggest downloading the PDF, and then trying to print it from the PDF viewer you are using.

    Downloaded adobe reader from the store and opened the pdf with that. To my surprise, there is no print option in adobe. Tried other pdf aps as well no print option. It's just nuts..with windows phone, you cant print!!

    To manage PDF's in Windows Phone (on 8.1), use the Files app, long press the desired PDF to share, move, copy, ect, but I have no print option. I transfer the file to my desktop via Bluetooth and print from there. Maybe with Bluetooth enabled printers you can do it directly. I haven't signed up for Adobe's PDF Pack, in which you can create and export PDF's, as I still do most of my document work my desktop.

    It's ridiculous that we can't print a Pdf easily!
    That includes from Microsoft's own PDF Reader and Edge.

    No need to an app to print, it should have an option when the wireless printer is enabled. Can you give us a print screen so we can help you?

    I found that as well. The way around is to email the pdf to your printer - my recently bought HP printer has an email address, and that works fine. I've only seen the print function properly in Office, and that doesn't open pdf files on Phone.
