You can use it as a copier as it comes out of the box. To print to it without it being connected to your computer you need to have it connected to a wireless network. The software that comes with printer will take you through that process quite easily. Then you can print to it from another device that can access that same network. The printer comes with a USB cable so you can also have it directly connected to the printer. It also has an ePrint capability that enables you to print to it by sending an email to your printer. I have not tried this function and probably do not have a need to. Very versatile printer for the price.

Wireless..
Well in oneway yes, it has wireless capability either from a laptop or receiving print via web, however your machine hastobe linked to the web and your machine first.
Second "wireless" it does not have its own power supply, so you have to connect this to a 110 source..

I have windows 7 home pro, but according to HP, there is a driver for windows 8 compatibility for this printer. That is one of the reasons that I bought this printer, but I have not yet gone to 8 so I can't say for sure how it works. I am really happy with my printer-- I think I'd try it and update it to a windows 8 driver. Hope this helps.

This HP e-All-in-One Printer has Full Feature Software and Drivers for Windows 8. However, these may, or may not be in the box on the unit that you buy, depending on “when” a specific unit was boxed.

I assure you that downloadable software drivers are the same as what ships on the disc. If you find that, the disc in your box does not happen to have Windows 8 you can easily download the necessary drivers at the following website:
