    • Hi Rakhi!
      It actually depends on the type of file you’re trying to open/print. You need to mention that.

      If it’s a PDF, you can simply right click and open with Google chrome or any other browser and then hit ctrl+p to print.

      If it’s some other document such as Word file (.docx), Excel (.xlsx) or PowerPoint presentation (.pptx), you would need the respective Microsoft Office Software in order to open them after downloading from WhatsApp.

      You may also use Microsoft Office Online (free) or Google Docs/Sheets/Slides (free) in case you do not have the required softwares installed on your system.

  4. I’m amazed. I do not think I know anybody who understands just as much about the topic. You should make a career of it, seriously, awesome blog
