  2. Select File>Print.
    • Note: If the application presents a "non-native" macOS print dialog (such as Adobe Acrobat or Google Chrome),  you may need to  click a button labeled something like "Printer..." or "Print using system dialog..." to display the native macOS print dialog.
  3. Select the Printer: drop-down menu and select the desired MyPrint print queue (myprint-bw or myprint-color).
  4. Click Print
  5. When prompted, enter your Brown username and password. 
    • Note: Your Mac's local account username will be pre-populated in the Name: field. Delete this and enter your Brown username.
