Do you want to learn how to scan on your Chromebook? then this article is for you

This article explains how to scan on a Chromebook using the Embedded Web Server (EWS) found primarily on Hewlett Packard printers.



One of the most common printer manufacturers in the market is Hewlett Packard. Most HP Printers include a feature called Embedded Web Server (EWS). You can scan any document on Chromebook using HP’s Embedded Web Server (EWS). Here’s how.

  1. Before you can use EWS on your Chromebook, you’ll need to find your printer’s IP address. The easiest way to do this is from the built-in menu on the printer, under Preferences > Options Wireless Settings (if it’s a wireless printer). You may also see a View Wireless Details option to view the IP address.

    Note: The menu path to find Wireless Settings may be slighly different depending on your printer model.

  2. Once you have the IP address of your HP printer, launch Google Chrome on your Chromebook and type that IP address into the URL address field. You’ll see the main menu for your printer.

  3. Select the Scan tab. Under Webscan, if you’ve never used this feature before, you will likely see an error message that the feature has been disabled.

  4. If this is the case, select the Settings tab. Then, in the left menu under Security, select Administrator Settings. Select the checkbox to enable the Webscan feature. Select Apply when you’re done.

  5. Now, when you return to the Scan tab, you’ll see the scan settings where you can adjust the output document type, resolution, quality, and other settings. Select Start Scan to have your printer scan the document you’ve placed on the scanner bed.

  6. This will open a new tab in your browser where you’ll see the image of the scan appear. When the scan is finished, you can right-click the image and select Save image as to save it to your Chromebook or Google Drive account.

  7. You can repeat this process as many times as you like to scan additional documents or photos.
