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.

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

Hi

We have Windows 2012 active directory server and windows 7 clients PCs and have subscribed for a web base program . Around 50 users will be taking the test on this program.
There is audio on this program and the audio dosent work on internet explorer and works only oly on the google chrome browser. The software vedor has also said that sound will work only on Google chrome.

We have Internet explorer and google chrome installed on the user workstations and i have put the shortcut for the URL on every user desktop ( for this web base program).  When users open the shortcut , it opens in the internet explorer.
Please let me know if there is a way to set up , that when users clik the desktp shortcut , the program open in google chrome.

Any tutorials will be great.

We currently are running Windows 10 in our environment and every computer has Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Firefox and chrome browsers installed and able to be used by the users.  We leave it as a user preference, especially since our users browse to many different types of websites and sometimes one browser is better suited than another.
My problem arises with keeping the history of the users browsing.
We would like to be able to review a users browsing history whenever we choose.
With internet explorer I have a policy to keep history for 90- days and not allow users to delete history.
How do I accomplish this same task for the other three browsers (Edge, firefox and Chrome )?

All of a sudden when I enter a from and to destination in www.google.co.uk, like this for example:

"Madrid-New York"

I don't get any link to Google Tickets in the search results any more (I always got that earlier).

Another thing that also happened in relation to this is that when I do a Google search in my own language (Swedish), using www.google.se and advanced settings where I have selected to only display search results in my own language, is that now it doesn't say that the search results are in the Swedish language (but they seem to be). Earlier this was always displayed.

So what has happened with my Google (both www.google.co.uk and www.google.se), and what do I need to be able to go to Google Tickets again? Does anyone have the URL?

I use Google Chrome on a Windows Home 7 Premium.

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!

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?
