  1. Chromebook Printer Question

    Hey all. I know this doesn't belong on this subforum but does anyone now if you have a chromebook, can you print from it if you have a printer? Thus imagine like a regular windows computer connected to like an HP printer... i would print it by connecting hp printer to my windows laptop.

    But does anyone know if i could download a driver and then use it to print with the chromebook instead? I read online that you could connect via wifi or usb cable... i have no idea what that even means connecting via wifi to a printer. I mean doesn't the printer have to be connected via a cable to a computer no matter what?

    I ask this because i print things a few times only and when i do this, i always use this old windows laptop that has hp drivers installed but that laptop is old and slow. But could i print from it using my chromebook instead?

    Did our Epson printer get hacked?

    Another question, is this on a home network or a work network? The steps @eidairaman1 listed are always a good first step. If this is on a work network you manage, I'd be much more concerned than the home one. It is possible someone is screwing with you, but malware could also be the culprit.

    Hi Rodrigo,

    I am sorry to know that you are having issues with Printer.

    What and all steps have you tried so far?

    Restart the computer and check.

    Also, check for Windows updates.

    I suggest you to run the Printer Troubleshooter and check if it helps.

    • In Search window type Troubleshooting and click on it to open it.

    • Click on Hardware and Sound.

    • Then click on Printer to run the troubleshooter. Follow onscreen steps.
