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.

Hi everyone.
We are running a digital software that runs in a full screen browser (chrome)

Today we're using a Windows based compute stick from Intel as player pc.

In regedit we have altered the shell to open chrome (sometimes chromium) in kiosk with the URL needed. It works very well, but still there is one concern.

Many of our users tend to just pull the plug to turn off their system, meaning that Windows is not shut down properly.
With a script we have disabled automatic repair so that no user input is needed, but still in a bit worried if I'll run into problems eventually.

Therefore I'm considering trying out a chromebit.

Does anyone have experiences with chromebit as digital signage player 🤔
I need it to startup with a chrome in kiosk mode, and i want to be able to remote control the device, in case of technical issues.
Also is it possible to have it turn on and off by schedule?

Any suggestions and opinions are appreciated

We have about 70 Chromebooks that I need to install an app to for MAP testing. I am trying to follow the - MAP Testing Chromebook kiosk app set-up guide
Introduction
NWEA released a kiosk app named MAP Chromebook Testing App in July 2015. Kiosk apps are specially deployed and run independent of user accounts on the Chromebook.

Since the devices are no on the domain I am using the non-managed device instructions.

For non-managed devices:
If you are using a non-managed device, follow these steps:
1.      Open a new tab in Chrome.
2.      Enter chrome://extensions in the address bar (also known as the omnibox).
3.      Press Enter.
4.      Check the box next to Developer Mode.
5.      Click Add kiosk application, and enter the ID of the kiosk app you'd like to enable. The ID for the MAP testing app is omkghcboodpimaoimdkmigofhjcpmpeb
6.      Press Enter.
The installed kiosk app will now appear in the tray under Apps for a user to open from the shelf.

I cannot find the app. Infact I can't seem to find Apps in the tray even though it appears to have installed correctly. Please help.

Thank you.

Thanks for taking the time for making this tutorial, really appreciated. I always create screencast with a web-based software calls Acethinker Online Screen Recorder, It's a free web-based application to record computer screen right from the browser, you don't have to download or install anything. Share it here as an alternative to Screencastify.

I'm setting up 20 Chromebooks for a small private school and it's a first with Chromebooks and the chromebook management software for me.  What I'm trying to figure out is this...
They thought about assigning one Chromebook to 3 students but the other option (easier) is to allow any student to log into any of the Chromebooks.  The problem is I'm concerned the 16 gig drive will fill up if people start keeping things in the downloads folder and/or if user settings are stored locally.  Is there a way to keep this from happening?  Each student will have there own login credentials and google drives under the GAFE account.

We want to utilized the Monitoring and Reports options that is available through the management software. But, I also see that I can't enable the option "Erase all local user info, settings, and state after each sign-out" otherwise the logging won't work and this where I'm stuck.  Not sure how to get around not being able to use the Erase all local user info at log off option yet not have to worry about the drives filling up if a bunch of students log into the same Chromebook.

I started looking at how the "sync user settings and data" option works but I'm still unclear as to the best option for this sinario.  

Thank You!

Hello,
I've been recruited (free volunteer) to setup and configure 20 Chromebooks for a small private school.  They purchased 20 new Chromebooks, the school has a G-Suite for education account and they purchased 20 Chromebook management licenses to go with the Chromebooks.
Although I'm familiar with Windows active directory and group policies, this is the first time I've used this Chrome management service.  Here is my big question...
Why should I recommend to the school Admin that the kids should login with a google account associated with the schools domain versus the kids logging in with a personal g-mail account?
Are all policies available at the device level or are there more policies available at the user level?    It seems like there are more options if you have everyone log in with the school's domain and then apply policies to users or OU's rather then being restricted to device policies due to the students logging in with personal g-mail addresses.
For some reason, I'm unclear on as to why at this point, the schools administrator is reluctant to give the students email addresses at the schools domain.  I'm thinking I should persuade the school admin that the students should indeed be given a school domain email and insist they log in using only that email.  Am I correct in my thinking and if so why?
Thank you!

Trying to configure OpenVPN on a Chromebook. I've added the ca and the p12. However, when I try to connect I'm getting an error

"TLS Error cannot locate HMAC in incoming packet from [AF_INET] xx.xx.xx.xx"   (FYI OpenVPN Server is a pfSense Firewall)

I've exported the opvn, ca and p12 directly from the pfSense OpenVPN Client export... Chromebook seems to not be able to use an opvn config file.

What can I do to resolve this?

What are the best methods to completely migrate all emails, calendar items, contacts, tasks, etc. from Gmail into Office 365?

I've heard that the free migration services that are built into Office 365 will only migrate emails. We need to make sure that everything within corporate Gmail email accounts are migrated into Office 365.

Is it best to use a website service like Migration Wiz?

What is the process for a Google Drive administrator to access the entire corporate Google Drive share & view which users have permissions to which folders?

An organization I am working for currently has 1 TB of data within a corporate Google Drive account.

As the Google Drive administrator I need to be able to view the entire contents of the Google Drive account so that I  can verify the sharing permissions for each folder and view which files are located within each folder.

The current Google Drive administrators (including me) currently only have access to view the Google Drive folders that are shared with us and are unable to view the entire contents (all folders and files) of the corporate Google Drive account.

How can this be done?

I'm a great believer in making code as compact as possible, whether or not it meets best practice standards as long as it works. This code will cycle through the cells in a range and go to the google translate page for the value in the currently selected cell. All I need to solve my problem is the simplest possible code that will then - as commented out in line 10 below - copy the English translation on the newly generated web page and append it to the currently selected cell. How would I do that?
Sub TranslateText()
Dim cel as Range, TxT As String, 
For Each cel In Range([T26], [T27])
cel.Select
TxT = Replace(cel.Value, " ", "%20")
   [T2].Hyperlinks.Add Anchor:=[T2], Address:= _
       "https://translate.google.com/", SubAddress:="es/en/" & TxT, _
        TextToDisplay:="https://translate.google.com/#es/en/" & TxT
   [T2].Hyperlinks(1).Follow NewWindow:=False, AddHistory:=True
   'Here I need code that will copy the English translation and then append it to the currently selected cel
ThisWorkbook.Activate
Next cel
End Sub

Open in new window

Thanks!

Hi,

When I try to login to to Google on my PC using ANY of the latest browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Opera etc) I am able to enter my username but when I press the "NEXT" button nothing happens.  I added a screenshot of the page that I am stuck on here:  http://i.imgur.com/zMpNrFM.jpg and the link I am stuck on is below.    The link that i am stuck on is https://accounts.google.com/signin/v2/identifier?hl=en&%3B&flowName=GlifWebSignIn&flowEntry=ServiceLogin

If I use an old Safari browser that is unsupported or I add a Script Blocker to one of the new browsers (like NoScrip) then I get the old Google V1 Login page and I can login with no problems. See image: http://i.imgur.com/A9YlIYy.jpg

Can someone help me figure out how to fix this issue?

Sincerely,

David S.
