How to print a document created in Google Drive



Problem or Question:

I want to print a document I created in Google Drive but it doesn't print

Step 3. In the dialog box, select either Open with Acrobat Reader or Save File which will save a copy on your local computer. Opening with Reader is quicker and doesn't download the file. If the document is a spreadsheet there may be an initial dialog box asking if you want to open all sheets or just the active one. You can check the box to set your preference for this choice.

Step 4. Once Reader is displaying the document, select print.

Step 5. A dialog box will open and the printer and other options can be selected.

Step 6. Click Print.



Google Drive does not have a connection to your local printers and so the document must be open locally to print.
