How to access Wi-Fi from your Chromebook or Laptop
To connect to the Internet, use a compatible Wi-Fi network.
Step 1: At the bottom right, by the time, click the wifi connection icon
Step 2: Select not connected
Note: If you see your Wi-Fi network name and a signal strength, your Chromebook is already connected to Wi-Fi.
Step 3: Turn on Wi-Fi.
Step 4: Your Chromebook will automatically look for available networks and show them to you in a list.
Step 5: Select the name of the network you want to connect to and click it. If needed you will now enter the password for that network.
Step 6: After verifying the password the icon will change and you will be connected.
A TOUR OF YOUR CHROMEBOOK
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.
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.
|Go to the previous page in your browser history (F1)|
|Go to the next page in your browser history (F2)|
|Reload your current page (F3)|
|Enter Immersive mode, which hides the tabs and launcher (F4)|
|Enter Overview mode, which shows all windows (F5)|
|Decrease screen brightness (F6)|
|Increase screen brightness (F7)|
|Decrease the volume (F9)|
|Increase the volume (F10)|
|Search your apps and the web at the same time. On a Chromebook, this key is located on the side, where you’d normally find the Caps Lock key. If you’re using a regular keyboard, the Windows key in between Ctrl and Alt will work as the search key. Tip: To turn Caps lock on temporarily, press Alt + the search key.|
There is currently no functionality assigned to the F11 and F12 keys. Keys may vary slightly depending on your Chrome device model.
In addition to the top row of keys, here are a few handy keyboard combinations. To see a map of all shortcuts on your screen, press Ctrl+Alt+?.
