Power up your Chromebook Usage
Many of you miss the splendid action of the ‘right-click’ button on Chromebook’s touchpad, don’t you? But have you had a closer look at it? When you use your two fingers to press down on the touchpad, you can see a click style options menu coming up. From here, you can copy links as you wish.
Smartly Work Offline
It is a well-known fact that Chromebooks need internet connectivity. There are several ways of staying online right from connecting to a free Wi-Fi or via tethering. But, when you have no access to the net at all, you can still survive working offline with your Chromebook. All you have to do is set up an offline access beforehand.
If you don’t have the need to access Google Docs, Calendar or Gmail, then you can switch to offline services on the Chrome OS.
Print on the Cloud with Google
With Chromebook by your side now, you can make paperless printing happen. Alas, this feature will not work if you connect a printer to your device; even though you may have a USB printer. To enable paperless printing, you must set up Google Cloud Print feature. To do that, just enable the printer and print by setting up the feature on your device.
All you need to do is open the chrome browser on that PC and go to ‘Menu’. Now you must click no ‘Settings’ and then ‘Show advanced settings’. That’s it. You’re almost done. Now just Sign in and enjoy the feature.
Cheers to the Infinity and Beyond
Productivity with Chromebooks is becoming a child’s play in the trending technology. Being so simple and easily manageable, you will not be surprised to know that you will still want to stick to a nearby Wi-Fi as much as possible.
