    Welcome to the Forum. You'll find a bunch of iPad enthusiasts here who are only too willing to help.

    OK - the printer. If you tell us what make/model it is, then we can try and help. If it's an AirPrint compatible WiFi printer, then you're good to go out of the box.

    If not, you'll need a third party app - such as 'Print N Share' which cleverly 'convinces' the iPad that it's connected wirelessly to an AirPrint printer and inserts itself into the in-app printing menu.

    If your printer isn't WiFi then Print N Share can still work, via a WiFi connection to your PC.

    Unfortunately you cannot connect the iPad *directly* to a wired printer - not even via the iPad's 'USB' cable, which has only limited capability. Similarly Bluetooth printers are not supported by the iPad.

    Hope you enjoy your iPad and get back to us if you need more help.
