NEXT: CHROMEBOOK TOUCHPAD TIPS

To help you find things quickly, your Chromebook keyboard has special shortcut keys, including a dedicated search key. The shortcut keys make it easy to get around online and control your Chromebook, and the search key lets you search your apps and the web at the same time.

Shortcut keys

Some special keys sit along the top of Chromebook keyboards. If you’re using a Windows keyboard with your Chromebook, the F keys at the top of the keyboard will work just like the keys below.
