Can you print to a Sprocket from a Windows 10 laptop?

HP Recommended
sprocket
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have it setup nicely on my Galaxy 5S.  I also connected it via bluetooth to my windows 10 laptop but cannot figure out if I can print to it from my PC.  Can this be done?

Hi,

Sprocket is only intended to print pictures from a mobile devices.

 

See its requirements below, it is only intended for iOS or Galaxy and not any other operating systems:

Hi,

 

It is designed for portable devices using apps. Normal PC needs software and drivers, unfortunately no software and drivers from it:

Option: transfer photos to your portable device(s) and print from it/them.

 

Regards.

Well, I have found I can print from my Kyocera flip phone and also from my HP all-in-one desktop computer.

You do need bluetooth, but I have a Bluetooth dongle and I can plug it into my PC, go to the taskbar and I was able to link to the Sprocket.  Then you can do a SEND a FILE.  You browse to the file you want (that is, find a photo) and print it.  It DOES and CAN work--you do NOT need to have it on a phone/tablet and use the HP app.

Let me add one more thing: YES, you can print to a Sprocket with Windows 10 and other devices, BUT you won't be using the SPROCKET app.  That may or may not matter.  The app does allow you to edit photos, add text and cute borders (if you are into that stuff).  But you can print from other devices--mark my word on that.

Yes, it can print.  In Windows 10 assuming you Bluetooth is working, you should have a small Bluetooth icon on the bottom taskbar.  Open it.  It should have a SEND FILE and RECEIVE FILE.  Click on the SEND FILE and select a file an it should go to the Sprocket printer.

Yes, just tried it with Windows 10.  You have to connect via bluetooth from your laptop and then "send file" .

Glad you got it working.  It can and does work.  YES, you don't use the Sprocket mobile APP, but that might not matter anyway unless you like cute middle-school girl borders and unicorns!

I just printed a jpg image using my old ACER netbook ( Windows 7 32bit ) . The steps are almost the same as using Windows 10 but instead of "send file" comand (in bluetooth icon) it's send to, then another window will open showing "bluetooth" as where your sending the highlighted file to. Good luck.
