Think Google Thursday: Chromebook Tips

As more and more schools are making the decision to use Chromebooks, here are some helpful tips that will help teachers and students make the most of using them with Google Apps for Education. 

  • If the image on the home screen is rotated:
Ctrl-shift-reload/refresh will rotate the entire screen by 90 degrees each time it is pressed.

  • If you need to remove a user from a Chromebook, do not login. At the login screen, click on the upper right corner of that user's login icon and remove the user. 
  • If a Chromebook is having issues, turn it off and then on again. You can also perform a reset by pressing REFRESH + POWER - this fixes a lot of issues, including screen not turning on, sluggish, locked up and more.
