Your Chromebook can connect to the following types of devices:
- USB storage, mice, and keyboards (see supported filesystems)
- SIM cards
- SD cards
- External monitors and projectors
- Headsets, earsets, microphones
Consult the help information provided by your Chromebook's manufacturer to determine the locations of various ports on your Chromebook.
Using an external monitor or projector
To project your Chromebook's screen on an external monitor or via a projector, connect the device to your Chromebook. Consult the help information provided by your Chromebook manufacturer to determine what type of connector you should use. Once connected, the device will be automatically detected and your screen will be projected, using the best possible resolution.
If you've connected an external monitor, the screen will be displayed on both your Chromebook and the monitor. Currently, it's not possible to set up an extended display.
If your Chromebook isn't projecting, you can try pressing Ctrl and to manually reconfigure the monitor. If no external device is detected, the screen won't project.
Connecting to printers
No cables or printer drivers needed! Your Chromebook uses the Google Cloud Print service to print. Google Cloud Print can print to either a cloud ready printer, such as the ePrint line from HP, or a classic printer connected to a Windows or Mac proxy computer.
