    Yes computer user name and password

    Or enable guest mode on laptop and you wont get the name/password prompt..you don't have to be logged in as guest just have it activated....

    To enable. Control panel, user accounts, manage another account, guest account, turn on

    Brilliant thank you very much, much appreciated.

    I just tried it and worked but it won't work unless I click on a program I found on the Internet. Anyway I can do it without having to go into that program all the time?

    Its a real pain to put the pc click on AirPrint.exe to print from my iPad I may aswell print from my pc.

    But I would like to print from my iPad rather than going through all that.

    Any idea BrennB?

    Hmmm put a link to airprint.exe from your program files into the startup folder. That way the program is running as soon as your turn on your PC.

    Certainly not when using the Airprint.exe solution. And you should not have to manually start it... if setup correctly it will be loaded every time the PC starts up.

    If you have one of the--relatively few--directly-supported printers you don't need the PC on.
