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

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!

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

Whenever I open up a Google Chrome tab and type in any website address I get a little error message on the lower left hand side of the screen that reads: "waiting for Google-Analytics.com" and the top has a little wheel that is going. I have cleared the cache and cookies from the browser, downloaded Malwarebytes and ran a scan (no threats) and now currently running Rogue Killer to see what happens. Need your advice please.

We use Fortinet in our organization. Our typical setup to allow a user to remote in is to install Forticlient on a laptop with remote desktop and then have them connect. We purchased a Chromebook as a test to see if we could use these for people who want to remote in as they're cheaper than a laptop.

However, the issues we're having is setting up the VPN on the Chromebook as we can't use Forinet because it's only available if you're using the management console and have quite a few Chromebooks on your domain.

Has anyone had any success using Chromebooks for a remote access and if so, can you share in detail how you got it to work?

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
Thanks
Scott

Hello,

How can I get a list of URLs in Excel into an HTML file to import into the Google Chrome Bookmark Manager?

After running Windows 7 for a few years, I recently upgraded to Windows 10 and at the same time, upgraded to a larger C Drive.  The previous C Drive is now Drive F.

I found somewhere online that Chrome bookmarks are saved in a file called Bookmarks which resides in this folder:

      C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default

I've located that file as well as the old (much larger) file in the same directory on the F Drive but now how do I merge the two?

I tried opening the smaller file with Notepad but it's a mess (ie lots of code) but then I found that by opening Chrome's Bookmark Manager and Selecting All, I could copy all the bookmarks to Excel as a nice neat list of familiar-looking URLs. But trying that process in reverse to get them merged doesn't work.

Under the Organize heading in the Bookmark Manager is an option to:

        Import bookmarks from HTML file...

so that's why I'm wondering if I can convert the Excel list of URLs to an HTML file.

Thanks

Hi, I am using the below code to match some data from an input csv to 2 drop downs from a website, then download both a csv and pdf... (the csv, I am extracting info from, then overwriting it with the next download since I do not need it -- the pdf, I am keeping, if the day of the month is the 1st or the 15th... but, as you can see here, for testing, I have it set to today, the 14th, instead of 15th)

My problem is that it will run Ok, for the first 10 lines or so (the csv list is between 1200-2500 lines, so i'm not even close..)
but then, it will throw the below error:

[Errno 10061] No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it

Can anyone help me resolve this? I am new to python, scraping AND selenium so would appreciate any help -- or suggestions regarding making the code more efficient in general. Thank you!
