Print Files on Your Printer from Any Phone or Remote Computer via Dropbox

Tech how-to blogger Amit Agarwal details how to combine a Dropbox account and a simple script with any device that supports Dropbox (i.e., almost all popular smartphones and Windows/Mac/Linux operating systems) to remotely or wirelessly print documents on your home printer

The video above demonstrates the script in action, but the four-step setup is pretty simple. The short version:

1) Install Dropbox on the computer connected to your printer, 

2) make sure Dropbox is also installed on the device you want to print from (or set up an email-to-Dropbox service like previously mentioned Habilis), 

3) run the VBS script on the printer-connected computer (available at Digital Inspiration) to create and monitor a PrintQueue folder in your Dropbox folder, and 4) send any file you want printed to the PrintQueue folder.

For more details and the script, hit up Amit's full post at Digital Inspiration.
