Can You Print From Your Chromebook

I have asked this question before, I'm asking again. I'm not tech savvy I have an HP Envy 5530 printer which I have no problem printing from my Kindles, and iPad (wireless). I have had my Samsung Pro Chromebook for almost a year now. I can not for the life of me figure out how to print from this device. When I go to the print page, it says my printer (it knows it's name,and model) is offline. There is an option of Goggle Drive and PDF (I don't know what this is). It is annoying not to be able to print from the chromebook, I wish I could figure this out.

Here are directions from HP on how to connect your HP printer to your Chromebook and print. I don't have a printer or a Chromebook, but it looks like this should work. You need to install some HP software to make it work.

I have a Chromebook also and can not print.  We are not computer savvy and had a  technician come to the house to set up our computers.  Even he couldn't figure out how to set it up.

not to “muddy the waters” but I believe you do need to make sure you have a printer with the designation “air printer.” maybe?

 

There is an app called “O-Print” which transforms any printer into an air printer. By using this printer program, you can by-pass all of the hoopla such as setting up a “home network.”

Re: Can You Print From Your Chromebook

I have a Chromebood and I do print from it.

 

Go to chrome://devices

 

Follow the steps.  You need to find your IP on your printer.  You'll enter that on your computer and follow cloud print.

Thanks to everyone for their advice. I'll try again, but I'm not very optimistic I'll be printing from my chromebook!
