Printing from Chromebooks at Home

You can print from your Chromebook using most printers that connect to Wi-Fi or a wired network. Currently, Chromebooks don't support Bluetooth printing.

Tip: You can also use a USB cable to connect your printer to your Chromebook. When you use a cable, you'll see a notification. Follow any onscreen instructions. Your printer won’t need to be connected to Wi-Fi if it is directly connected to your Chromebook.


Step 1: Connect to the internet

  1. Turn on your printer.
  2. Connect your printer to a network. If you need help, follow your printer manufacturer’s instructions.
  3. If you haven’t yet, turn on your Chromebook and sign in.
  4. Connect your Chromebook to the same network as your printer. Learn how to connect to Wi-Fi.

Step 2: Print a page

  1. To print the page, image or document you’re viewing, press Ctrl + p.
  2. Next to "Destination," select the Down arrow .
  3. Select See more...
  4. Choose your printer. Tip: Some printers will automatically show up on this list. If you don’t see your printer on the list, you can select Manage.
  5. Select Print.

Add your printer to your Chromebook
  1. At the bottom right, select the time.
  2. Select Settings .
  3. At the bottom, select Advanced.
  4. Under "Printing," select Printers.
  5. Under "Available printers to save," next to your printer, select Save.
  6. Check that your printer appears at the top, under "Saved printers."
Tip: If your printer doesn’t appear, try turning your Chromebook’s Wi-Fi off and on.
