Are you the proud owner of a Samsung Chromebook and looking to set up a printer? Look no further. In this step-by-step guide, we will walk you through the process of setting up your Samsung Chromebook printer. Whether you are a tech-savvy individual or new to the world of Chromebooks, this guide will ensure that you have your printer up and running in no time.

Understanding Compatibility

Before diving into the setup process, it is crucial to ensure that your printer is compatible with your Samsung Chromebook. While most modern printers are compatible with Chrome OS, it’s still essential to double-check before making a purchase. Visit the manufacturer’s website or refer to the product manual for compatibility information.

Connecting Your Printer

Now that you have confirmed compatibility let’s move on to connecting your printer. The first step is to connect your printer and Chromebook to the same Wi-Fi network. This can usually be done by accessing the settings on both devices and selecting the desired network from the available options.

Next, open your Chrome browser on your Samsung Chromebook and click on the three dots in the top-right corner. From there, select “Settings” from the drop-down menu. Scroll down until you see “Advanced” and click on it. Under “Printing,” click on “Printers.”

In the Printers section, click on “Add Printer.” Your Samsung Chromebook will automatically search for available printers connected to your Wi-Fi network. Once it finds your printer, click on its name and hit “Add.” You may need to enter any required login credentials or PIN codes provided by your printer manufacturer during this process.

Configuring Printer Settings

After successfully connecting your printer, it’s time to configure its settings according to your preferences. To access these settings, go back to “Settings” on your Chromebook and scroll down to “Advanced.” Under “Printing,” click on “Printers” again.

Find your printer in the list and click on the three dots next to it. From the drop-down menu, select “Manage.” Here, you can adjust various settings such as paper size, print quality, and color preferences. Take some time to explore these options and customize them according to your needs.

Testing Your Printer

Once you have completed the setup process and configured your printer settings, it’s always a good idea to test if everything is working correctly. Open any document or web page that you would like to print and press “Ctrl + P” on your keyboard. This will bring up the printing dialog box.

Make sure that your Samsung Chromebook recognizes the correct printer by checking if its name is displayed in the printing dialog box. Adjust any additional print settings if necessary, such as selecting specific pages or multiple copies.

Finally, click on “Print” to send the document to your printer. If everything is set up correctly, you should hear your printer start up and see the document being printed.


Setting up a Samsung Chromebook printer may seem daunting at first, but by following this step-by-step guide, you’ll be able to do it with ease. Remember to check compatibility before purchasing a printer, connect both devices to the same Wi-Fi network, configure printer settings according to your preferences, and test everything out before relying on it for important tasks. With these steps in mind, you’ll be enjoying hassle-free printing from your Samsung Chromebook in no time.
