Chromebook 2: Google Cloud Print and the Brother HL-2270DW Laser Printer

Setting up the Brother HL-2270DW on my Samsung Chromebook 2 was as easy as a few clicks, using Google Cloud Print.

To begin, I first signed into my Google Account that has the 1TB storage, visited the Google Cloud Print Page and clicked “Try it now”. A pop-up box with printing options appeared.

I skipped over the printing options and clicked the “Connect your printer to Google using Google Cloud Print” link.

On the next page, I clicked “Add Classic printer”

I then followed the instructions on the “Connect your classic printers with Google Cloud Print” Page

Once you follow the short instructions, you are ready to print. I printed a couple of pages from this site to test it, and encountered no problems.
