Introductory Chromebook Tips

  • You must login to your Chromebook using your TRSD Google account and password. It will then automatically connect you to all your Google files and apps. Your personal Google account will not work on school-managed Chromebooks.
  • There is a handle built-in to the back of the Lenovo Chromebooks – it is recommended that you use this handle to carry the device.
  • A right click is accomplished by hitting the trackpad with two fingers at once, or using “alt” + click.
  • You should shutdown and reboot your Chromebook at least once a week – that brings down updates.
