How does remote printing with TeamViewer work?
TeamViewer 8 (and later) allows you to use local printers within a remote control session. This allows you to print documents from remote computers on your own printer without the need to transfer files. From the remote computer you can access the same printers (including network printers) as you would on your local computer.
To use remote printing, follow these steps:
- Within a remote control session, click Extras | Remote printing
- Confirm to install the TeamViewer print drivers on the remote device
- After the driver is installed, you can select all local printers within any print dialog. Remote printers are marked with "via TeamViewer".
After that, you are able to print files on the printer right beside you from within any application on the remote computer.
