  Have you experienced the need to print a document right away and you just left your laptop or netbook at home?  Now that gadgets are on their revolutionary era, know that there are different—and easy—ways to work your way through and through using your gizmos.  Here’s a step-by-step how-to’s for you to follow just in case:

 

Prerequisite

  • For initial preparation, you have to install Google Chrome to both your PC (laptop or netbook) and to your Android phone or tablet.
  • If you still don’t have a Google account, be sure to make one. If you do already have, be sure that it is valid.

 

Registration of Your Printer

  • Ascertain which type of printer you have.
    • There are two major types of printer today under the basis of connectivity.
      • Classic Type Printer: These printers do not have independent internet connectivity. They solely rely on PC for internet connection.  In this case you still have to set up your PC with your classic type printer.
      • Cloud Ready Printer: These printers are internet-ready.

 

  • Sign in to your Google account and click on the “Settings” button which you can find at the upper right hand corner of the Chrome window. The setting icon looks like this:
