Who wouldn’t want to get their calendar in black and white so that whenever we have to take a look we can? Ever wondered how to print Google calendar? Well, we will talk about that here step by step.

With each passing day, like any other app circulating through the web, GCal too has been keeping up just fine. It can now do wonders and make your life a lot easier through its hacks. 

From small scale business entrepreneurs to school teachers, all of us wondered if we could get our daily events’ chart right in front of us whenever we needed it. 

This saves from constantly looking at our phones or doing mental math to figure out what to do next. So, here is a step by step on how you can now solve the problem by printing out your Google calendar and much more.

Since GCal is a Google product you must sign in to your Google account to access it. Simply sign in with your email and password and go to Calendar-Google to access your calendar.  

Once the calendar layout flashes in front of you, navigating through it is a piece of cake.  

Use Keyboard Shortcuts to Choose a Calendar Format or Choose from the Top Right Menu:

In order to get your desired calendar printed, the first step is to choose a calendar. As another example of why keyboard shortcuts are a lifesaver, go to your calendar’s top right corner to find a box with a drop-down menu. 

On this menu, you will find a list of categories named Day, Week, Month, Year, Schedule, 4 Days and Show Declined Events. You will see that there are individual letters assigned beside each category, such as D in Day. 

Now for the magic. 

All you have to do is press D or T to see only today’s date on the display. 

Similarly, click M for this month’s calendar. Choosing a calendar for print-out in just a click or less. 

2. Press on the Gear Icon and Click Print:

After you have chosen your calendar for print you go to the top right corner again and right beside the Day, Month menu you will find the gear icon, pressing which we pretty much solve all our normie technological troubles on a regular basis. 

There you will find Print, fourth on the list. Click that to go into the next round. 

3. Customize Your GCal Layout and Date Range:

At this point, I for one am happy with how my calendar looks but not GCal! 

Once you press to print it will open the print preview section with a few options. 

Remember we chose one of the categories from the Day, Week, Month menu-bar? Now, we can select a specific date range if we wished from the Print Range option showing here at the top. 

We can also select a date range of our choice for an improved customization because let’s face it, what good is printing a calendar if we have to edit over it again? 

You can even choose your preferred font size, color, and style, or orientation from this menu. Neat! 

4. See a Preview of the Print Options You Chose:

5. Connect to a Printer First, Select a Printer and Click Print:

Speaking from personal experience, being forgetful and busy, you can never be too careful. 

Before you hit print make sure you have a printer connected to your computer, otherwise you will not see a printer listed.

You will need to click on the down arrow to see other options because by default this menu is set to “Save as PDF”

6. Take a Quick Look at Your Print Preferences:
