With the file open in TeXworks, press Ctrl+T.  At the bottom of your source file a diagnostic window will appear.  If it then disappears, your TeX file has compiled successfully and you should see the rendered result in the right-hand integrated PDF viewer.  If it fails to compile, the diagnostic window will remain open and you will need to attend to the problem(s) reported.  Once all errors (if any) are corrected, you can initiate printing from the PDF preview window (File / Print PDF) — this will require a standalone PDF reader such as Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat.
