How To Print from your Chromebook – Introduction




How to print from your Chromebook

Hello! Welcome to Chromebook Guide’s printing tutorial!

“How do you print from a Chromebook?!?”

As a Top Contributor in Google’s Chromebook Central product forum, I’ve spent a good deal of time helping users with that question. Topic titles like “can’t print from my Chromebook” and “Chromebook won’t recognize printer” are all too common. The reason for the confusion is that Chromebooks don’t print like your typical Windows or Mac machine. Instead, Chromebooks utilize Google’s Cloud Print service in order to send print jobs to a printer.

In this tutorial, I’m going to first explain how Google Cloud Print works. I think it’s important to understand how Google Cloud Print works, and how it’s different from what you may be used to.

After that, I’ll get into specific printer manufacturers and how to setup their printers with Google Cloud Print. If you’re already familiar with how Google Cloud Print works, and you’d like to skip ahead to the setup bit, click here. If you’re not already familiar with how Google Cloud Print works, I recommend taking a couple minutes to let me explain how Google Cloud Print works.
