You finally did it. You’ve spent hours working on the perfect presentation on Google Slides, and now it’s finished and ready to be presented to the world. Or, you know, to its intended audience.
But wait – there might be one more step you’re forgetting in this moment of victory. Do you need a guide so you don’t have to keep turning around to look at the screen in the conference room in front of your coworkers? Did your professor maybe ask for a hard copy so she can make remarks on it?
If so, your easiest course of action would probably be to just print out the whole slideshow. It’s not a document, and there might be a lot of pages, but it will be in its original format, so the chances that you or anyone else looking at it will get lost are relatively small.
Depending on which browser you use, the steps to print Google Slides are slightly different. Here’s how to do it.

When you are finished, click the “Close preview” button on the left side of the toolbar.
4. Click “File” again, then select”Print” – or simply press Ctrl + P on your PC keyboard, or Command + P on a Mac – to print your slideshow.
How to print Google Slides from Safari or Firefox
If you’re printing from either Safari or Firefox, the first three steps are the same as from Chrome, but instead of actually printing when you click Print, your file will automatically download as a PDF, so there are a couple more steps:
1. Once your PDF downloads, open it.
2. Click the “Print” button in your browser or PDF reader, or press Ctrl + P on a PC or Command + P on a Mac.
3. Adjust your orientation and colour mode, and select the number of pages you want to print, then click Print.
