For Online Computer Support, Ask a Computer Technician
Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
The first question is: whether your particular Canon printer is capable of connection to Google Cloud.
Printers don't run directly off a Chromebook, at all. They have to be networked printers, that are either capable of a Cloud connection, or are hooked up to a computer that has a Cloud connection and has allowed Sharing of that printer also.
(Note: if hooked up to a computer with a Google Cloud connection, then that computer needs to have its firewall software allow the connection to Google Cloud of the printer attached to it.)
The first step is, to get it connected to the Google Cloud facility... this means it must be connected by wireless or wired means to your local internet router.
OK so far?
You may have to update your printer's firmware for it to be Google Cloud-ready (and thus usable 'directly', as opposed to through a computer, for a Chromebook.)
But to check whether it is necessary: Do you know how to read of your printer's current firmware version?
JustAnswer is not a 'ripoff' at all, I assure you. I was only beginning to advise you as to what to do to get your Chromebook printing to your Canon printer (if it is possible. Chromebook compatibility is limited to some models, but by no means all.)
If I may offer further help, let me know.
Thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com.
