How do I connect my printer to my Chromebook?

A Chrome is used differently from a laptop with Windows 10 or a Macbook. That's why installing a printer is done a bit differently from what you're used to. In this article, you can read how to connect a printer to your Chromebook.

Step 1: open Settings

Open the application bar on a Chromebook.

Turn on your printer and make sure it's connected to your router. Then follow these steps:

  • Open Google Chrome on your Chromebook and click Settings.
  • Open the hamburger menu at the top left.
  • Click on Advanced.

Step 2: go to printer settings
