Most computers connect to printers using a USB cord or wireless connection. Chromebooks allow you to print as well, but the process is a bit different. Since Google Cloud Print is no longer supported, you’ll need to find another way to print. In this lesson, we’ll explain how to connect your Chromebook to a wireless or traditional printer.
Because a Chromebook is a Wi-Fi enabled device, you can easily connect to a wireless printer. Before we begin, you’ll need your printer’s IP address.
Locating this IP address differs depending on your printer’s brand and model. You may need to search the printer brand’s support page to figure out how to find it.
Chromebooks have USB ports to support accessories such as a traditional USB printer. Before we continue, you’ll need to have plugged in the printer’s USB cable into your Chromebook’s USB port.
