How can I scan a document from the m177fw to a HP Chromebook? I've found other posts about webscan but that feature is not available for laserjets.

@PCLM Welcome to HP Community!

 

I understand that you would like san from HP m177fw to HP Chromebook. 

 

You may scan from the software by following the steps below:

Additional scanning options

If your printer does not support Webscan, use these other methods to access scans on a Chromebook.

  • Scan to a USB flash drive or SD card: If your printer has a USB or SD card port on the front panel, insert the storage device into the port, and then select the USB or SD card option from the Scan control panel menu. Once the scan is saved to the storage device, remove it from the printer and then insert it into an available port on the Chromebook to open the scan file.

  • Scan to Email or the Cloud: Some HP ePrint-capable printers with touchscreen control panels have built-in apps to send scans directly to an email account or to Google Drive. Open the Apps or Scan menus to access the Scan to Email or Drive app, and then follow any on-screen instructions to set up and use the apps.

    For additional information on using the Drive app, go to Setting Up and Using the Google Drive App on Your HP Printer.
