How to print a document directly from a Google Docs

Google Docs is a great service that allows you to edit documents online. I still use Microsoft Word, to be honest, but only because I’m too used to its interface, so I’m just too lazy to retrain. However, if you need to share a document or edit it with someone else, this is probably one of the best ways.

Of course, Google Docs lacks a lot of deep features that are in Microsoft Word, however, that’s enough in case you just want to create and edit a simple document.

And yet, sometimes we not only need to create and edit a document but also print it out. In that case, this article can help you.
