    How do I print from Onedrive?


    I have uploaded documents to Onedrive using Microsoft Office Lens using my Android mobile.

    That went well.

    I was then going to use my Windows 8.1 laptop to go to Onedrive and print a copy of each document, but there is no 'print' button to click on.

    How do I print from Onedrive?

    Thanks

    When you say "Print from OneDrive" are you talking about printing a document that's in the OneDrive folder on your local computer or are you trying to print a document listed on the OneDrive website?

    Either way, I was able to print Office documents but it appears that in order to print a document from the OneDrive folder on your local computer, you need to have Office installed there. Do you have Office installed on your computer? The native OS doesn't know how to print an Office document so, in order to print a document, it must be opened by Office and then sent to the printer.

    Even if you don't have Office installed on your local computer, you should be able to login to OneDrive.com, locate the docs there, open them on-line and print them.

    Yes, print from the 'Onedrive website'.
    Their website does not seem to have a 'print' button when I click on a document?
    The only way I could get it to work was to download each document onto my computer and then I was able to print them from there.
    Has something gone wrong with 'Onedrive' or has it never had a 'print' button to click on, and if not, why not?

    As I said earlier, on the OneDrive website you need to OPEN the document on-line, then you can print it.
