Printer Repair Questions? Ask IT Technicians for Answers ASAP
I don't know, if someone have told you about this feature to connect a printer with a chromebook by an USB cable or not, but the information is completely wrong, you cannot connect any printer with a chromebook by any cable, because you cannnot install the software of the printer in any chrombook, as a chrombook run a operating system which is completely different from Windows or Mac.

If you have that then, open the link below and follow the steps to configure the printer for the google cloud print and then, let me know for the next set of instructions.
