Chrome OS is an operating system based on the Linux kernel and designed to work with web applications and installed applications. Initially, Chrome OS was almost a pure web thin client operating system, with only a handful of "native" applications, but Google gradually began encouraging developers to create "packaged applications", some of which can work offline. App Runtime for Chrome (beta) enables Android applications to run on Chrome OS. Chrome OS is built upon the open source project called Chromium OS which, unlike Chrome OS, can be compiled from the downloaded source code; Chrome OS is the commercial version installed on specific hardware.

Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

          I am almost ready to start installing some applications and games onto an Acer Chromebook C720 Series Model ZHN running Chrome OS.  Before I begin this process, I am wondering how I can check the available internal hard drive storage or free space on this Chromebook.

          Thank you

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

          Using a link given to lifewire.com from a previously closed post, I learned the steps for creating a shortcut within Google Chrome.  However, the shortcut went into the taskbar area as opposed to the desktop.  That said, I am wondering how I might get the shortcut within the taskbar moved to the desktop.  The setup being used in this project is an Acer Chromebook C720 Series Model ZHN running Chrome OS.

            Thank you

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

       Seeing that I should not attempt to install any Windows-based applications or games onto an Acer Chromebook C720 Series Model ZHN running Chrome OS, I wonder where I might go online to download free applications and games made specifically for it.  

        Thank you

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

        I have an Acer Google Chromebook which is running Chrome OS as its operating system.  However, I have several programs and games which require a Windows-based operating system to run that I would like on it.  That said, I am wondering if it is possible to completely wipe or format the Chromebook and start over by installing Windows 10 and loading all of the necessary Windows 10 hardware device drivers on it.  

         If more specific information about the Chromebook is needed such as its model number, please let me know and I will furnish it right away.  

         Thank you.

I was working in Zendesk (using Chrome). At one point, I think I was searching for something (via CTRL-F) and I thought i saw the message "Bookmark Added" flash on the screen. is it possible I  hit some sort of hotkey to add a bookmark at the Chrome level?

I'd much rather it be that than an accidental bookmark insertion in Zendesk.

Thanks,
Steve

The problem:
I need to go to corporate websites to collect location information for all offices, branches or facilities. We want to be able to search a website of a large international bank, national restaurant chain, network of hospitals or multi-national conglomerate of manufacturing facilities and collect relevant information like Address Location Phone etc. For the purposes of plotting the branches offices restaurants or facilities on a map utilizing geo-coding and logistics. For instance, some of the banks, retail stores and or restaurants under their find a store locator or store locations area on many websites. Example https://www.lowes.com/

Data webpage I need address locations from to be scrapped
 As you can see from the store locator on the above website. It launches a small window of local store close to me. However, I am hoping to get a list of all stores either by state or across America. I am aware of the Google Sheets that uses there Import HTML or Import XML code function to do this.  I think Excel has a similar function as well. At the moment I cannot find examples or steps for what I am hoping to do. Wondered if any of you out there knew what tool I could use and how I might go about it?

Hi

I’m trying to setup a Chromebook to print to a Canon MG2950 using Google Cloud Print.

1)      Canon MG2950 is connected wirelessly to a local network. A windows laptop can print successfully.

2)      The Chromebook is connected wirelessly to the same network.

3)      The printer manual states that the MG2950 is compatible with Google Cloud Print

4)      Within the printer’s web interface, we have registered the printer with Google Cloud Print, using the same credentials that are used to log onto the Chromebook.

5)      When we log onto Google Cloud Print, the printer is listed (although greyed out), states it’s ‘owned by me’ but ‘currently offline’


Questions

a)      If the Chromebook and Google Cloud Print enabled printer are on the same local network, does the print request leave the local network e.g. does it get sent to external Google servers first before getting re-directed to the printer?

b)      Canon’s article https://support.usa.canon.com/kb/index?page=content&id=ART167513&cat=6992B002&actp=LIST mentions which ports Google Cloud Print uses. Is this outgoing, or incoming ports or both?

I look forward to receiving your thoughts/comments.

Regards

I wish to enable Device Management, in our G-Suite, only for enrolled Chromebooks. They are in a single OU.

I do not wish Basic Mobile Management activated for personal devices that have a G-Suite account on them.

Is this possible?

Many thanks

My Lenovo Chromebook will not connect with my Cannon printer.  When I have the two connected by wire, my Chromebook only gives me the option to save the file, which I am still unable to print.

Hello Experts,
I was given a Chromebook that seems to be in Recovery mode, I have never worked on this type of machine; I visited a few blogs that suggest putting on DEV mode by pressing the Ctrl+D keys, but I am not able to do that.
I also tried to create a recovery image using a USB, but regardless of the USB I use, it always says the device I inserted does not contain ChromeOS.

Any ideas on how I can recover this little machine?

For me the new Google Chrome sucks big time. They are getting more like Microsoft and publishing software without proper focus group testing. Can I get my old version back?

Hi, I didn't realize that uninstalling Chrome while it was the default browser would cause a problem, I was just trying to fix an issue where it kept hanging. So I uninstalled and reinstalled Chrome.

I've gone into default programs and set chrome as the default, rebooted, etc. Same issue. And if I close chrome and stop all its processes, then make internet explorer the default program, I get the same error when I click on a link in an outlook email.

Advice to fix this? Thanks.

I have a windows 10 PC that I want to remote access with a Chromebook.  I have tried many products to do this with and they all work and have different positives and negatives.  

I like the image quality of the RDP clients.  One of the biggest things missing on all but VNC is the two fingered scrolling using the Chromebook touch pad does not work.  

two questions....
1.  Is there a way to make the two fingered touch pad scrolling work from chrome to windows?  Possibly another rdp client?  
2.  Is there another remote access tool that has this feature besides vnc?

We want to make sure our files in Google Drive are secured.  We share files & images and understand that what we do make our google drive contents safe (shared users cannot access other drive contents) even though we share individual files if said drive.

we set the file share as follow:


We understand this is more than sufficient.  However  we did noticed something:

Wehen we share the link and the user deletes the word "view" from the link, it is replaced by "edit"

example:
(note "x" replaces the actual share link for obcious purpose)

https://drive.google.com/file/d/xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx/view

then we delete "/view"

press ENTER

the link change to

https://drive.google.com/file/d/xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx/edit


By doing thism can the image/file be edited?

please advice and if we doing this correctly.

Hi、

I would like to use online "Map" service like Google Earth, Google Map, and etc. in order to display about 1000 customer locations on the map.
It is for the internal use, so I do not want to share the data on public, so that our sales staffs can use the tool for analyzing the route or location to set their sales strategies.

Could you share with me how to accomplish it and what are the actual steps?


Thank you,
AW

FlintOS on ASUS Tinker Board provides a good ChromeOS experience however we have run into a brick wall hoping to enroll as a device on Google Management Console (G-Suite). "Oops! The system failed to determine device model or serial number" is the message we get. The environment is K12 school district where budget constraints are always present. Single Board Computers could be an alternative to Chromebooks if they can be centrally managed.  If not Google Management Console (G-Suite) then something else?
