Awesome. I had gone through everything I could find later in the evening and wondered if, once OneNote was installed on a given computer, if I could add it. I was trying the settings on a different computer that didn't have OneNote installed.in
so grateful you took the time to share. Thank you. +Wayne Mason
, not at all. It will run print cloud from anywhere there's an internet connection (even 3G/4G). So, you just leave any computer you have at home turned on as a server, in this case a print server, and it works from anywhere, remotely. As a bonus, there's now a Google Chrome Print Service you can download that will run the Cloud Print Server in the background and now doesn't require Chrome itself to be pen. Another improvement since I first setup Google Cloud Print years ago. I did manage to learn these things during all my searches to find out how to add OneNote. They say you can use your Android device to setup Google Cloud Print but for OneNote to work, it has to be from a desktop or laptop that has OneNote installed. Then it will see it as a printer to add. I actually managed to ER this working for the first time via Chrome Remote Desktop then print from my Android device once I had terminated the CRD link. For me it's a no trainer as I already have laptop on all the time at home acting as another server for us. Adding chrome print to it was simple. As an aside, if there are any other "print to" functions installed on a given computer running the print service, you can add those to Chrome print as well, this expanding the function further. One further thing, the one piece of info I found that talked about cloud print and OneNote was a newish service called Cloudpipes which apparently is acting as a sort of "IFTTT" type connector for many, many, many sites and services. Its in invite only beta but on a whim, I entered my email address, filled out the one question asking which services I want to work with and I added OneNote, cloud print, other Google services, Amazon cloud drive, OneDrive, etc and it just had me create a password on the spot and I was in. Haven't had a chance to set it all up but at least there's another option. I wanted to find out the way Alex B used before taking another route since he had successfully found a workaround.

great job figuring out such a useful workaround. This now works for literally any app that can be shared in Android with a Google print app such as Cloud Print Plus installed. A person isn't limited to the actual Android "print function" although it works perfectly well. Changing up the page size to something really large (rather than letter or A4) improves the format in OneNote later. Thanks again for all the info. People shared some truly useful ideas including copy and paste, which while it doesn't keep images in Android, it can otherwise recreate the webpage text. Even faster using the flotie.
