Ok

I have investigated the information you have provided and it sounds like you have a query relating to a printer which you need assistance installing on your Lenovo Chrome Book. I can understand this may be rather technical if you are trying for the first time, however, I would suggest that you refer to the steps I have attached below, they will assist you with the installation.

  1. At the bottom right, select the time.
  2. Select Settings.
  3. At the bottom, select Advanced.
  4. Under 'Print and scan', select Printers.
  5. Under 'Available printers to save', next to your printer, select Save.
  6. Check that your printer appears at the top, under 'Saved printers'.

I hope the information provided today helps and if you have any questions or require any further assistance, please let me know and I will do my best to answer those!

That didn’t work
I have tried that for almost a year
The name of the printer didn’t appear. I tried it wirelessly and then with cables

Has the printer been connected to your WiFi?

Rest

If your printer can't connect to Wi-Fi, but your network is working properly, try turning the printer off and on again. Alternatively, you can try resetting your wireless network again.
