Here’s how you could override the default Google Chrome’s Print dialog box and bring up the default Mac’s Print Dialog.
Google Chrome introduced a new print dialog, which basically overrides the system’s default print dialog. But the Google Chrome’s print dialog is much more advanced, with the ability to print via Cloud, and also, the user can save a page as PDF.
But there are a lot of users who don’t know how to disable this default dialog. Disabling the Google Chrome’s default print dialog is pretty easy, and this should be done manually. Here’re the steps to disable the default print dialog of Google Chrome. This could be done using an ActionScript, which is pretty simple.
How to disable Print Dialog in Google Chrome:
- Open Apple Script Editor using Spotlight
- Type in the following command into the Script Editor
do shell script "/Applications/Google\ Chrome.app/Contents/MacOS/Google\ Chrome --args --disable-print-preview > /dev/null 2>&1 &"
- Your screen should look as it is below:
- Now, click on Run, and the script will start running Google Chrome.
- And, that’s it. You’re done!
Hope this helps!
