A major reason why you encountered the HP printer not printing from internet problem is that your browser is out of date. As a result, it is unable to carry out certain functions including printing a webpage.

Therefore, the simple solution to this issue is to update the browser. To help you further, we will provide a quick step-by-step guide on how to update some major internet browsers.

How to Update Google Chrome on Computer

Your Google Chrome update occurs in the background whenever the browser is closed and then reopened. However, if you fail to close Google Chrome over a period, a pending update might appear.

To check for pending updates and then update your computer’s Google Chrome, do the following steps:

Step 1: Open Google Chrome on your computer.

Step 2: Look at the upper right corner for the “More” icon: It is 3 dots arranged vertically.

Step 3: If you have a pending update, you will find a colored icon.

  • If it is green, it means it is less than two days since the release of the update.
  • If it is orange, it means it is about four days since the release of the update.
  • If it is red, it means it is at least 7 days since the release of the update.

Once you discover that you have a pending update, continue with the steps below.

If the icon is not colored, you still need to continue with the steps below.

Step 4: Click on the “More” icon.

When you do this, Google Chrome will save the opened windows and tabs and then reopen them automatically after the restart. However, incognito windows will not reopen after the restart.

If you don’t want to restart immediately after the update, click on “Not Now”. With this selection, Google Chrome will apply the update after the next restart of the browser.
