Printing - Issues

A parent emailed and asked why her son cannot print from his school-issued Chromebook at home.  She did indicate that the Chromebook is connected to the home printer.  Do you have any idea why the Chromebook will not print?  Any guidance you can provide would be appreciated.

  • Can they print to this printer from another computer?
  • What the printer model is (HP, Lexmark, Dell)?    Try googling for known issues with the model printing from Chromebooks.
  • Do any error messages show up in the very bottom right corner when trying to print?
