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 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?

How can I either:

1. Find and read these 2 unread emails

or

2. Mark all of the over 80,000 emails in the Gmail Inbox as read to reset this unread email count?

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,

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?

Is it possible to setup offline file sync within Google File Sync within Windows?

We would like to be able to store and sync our documents on our local Windows 10 computers rather than solely having to access these files within the Google File Stream Cloud.

If this is possible how can it be done?

Is there a way of modifying the Gmail view to list emails sequentially instead of grouping emails together when I view my emails within the gmail.com website?

I would rather have each individual email listed as a separate email rather than having all replies and forwards to my original email grouped within the original email.

How can this be done?

At our small school we have several Chromebooks that we would like our students to use to complete their standardized testing. In order to do this they need to be put on the school domain. What is the process to put a chromebook on a domain?

Thank you!

We are putting a lab together for a nonprofit.  They said the computers that we might be getting in are chrome books.  So basically we would use chrome books for the lab.  I am not familiar with these types of laptops but I have a few questions?

What is the difference between a normal laptop and a chrome book?  Also, can they connect to a domain?  Can Microsoft office be installed on them?  What are the advantages and limitations?

Chrome slow to load (10 sec at least) since last major Windows update (Feb 2018). Once loaded requested web pages appeared quickly, no problem. In the meantime no problem with Edge. Did Microsoft purposely slow down competing browsers!! What can I do to fix this?

I've recently been tasked with setting up OpenVPN on a Chromebook (as an alternative work option for Windows and Mac Users).

I'm new to Chromebook's OS, but did manage to get a VM running for testing purposes.

Does anyone know of a Client I can use for OpenVPN Access Server?

Thanks

I contacted Lenovo to purchase an FRU part of 01AV968.  This FRU is a motherboard for a Lenovo 11e 3rd Generation Chromebook.  Lenovo or their Encompass do not have the board.  A number on the board is DALI8BMB6H0 REV: H.   I have tried several suppliers to no avail.  If anyone has any suggested suppliers for this motherboard, it would be greatly appreciated.

Starting yesterday evening, I'm frequently seeing the following message. Seems to occur when opening/working with Chrome.

Google msg (1 of 2)
When I click to show details, i see:

Google msg (2 of 2)
These msgs persist even after restarting.

How can I tell if this thing is a legitimate Google update, or a virus/malware?
How can I turn off this notification?

Additional info. (May or may not be relevant):
1. My machine restarted overnight without my asking for a reboot.
2. When I first stated up this morning, I saw a msg that my snipping tool was not functional....including something about contacting my system administrator. That issue resolved on its own.
3. While not actively working in Chrome, I saw it (on its own) navigate to my default page (page that comes up when I start it. Not sure if this behavior was a delayed start, or something else.

Thanks.

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

           I have a few favorites within Google Chrome on my laptop which I want to transfer over to my Bookmarks of PS4.  With that said, I am wondering if this can possibly be done.  If so, what procedures will be necessary to accomplish this goal?

           Thank you
