Chromebook For Dummies Cheat Sheet

The Chromebook is designed to rely heavily on the Internet for most of its functionality. Instead of a large hard drive, Chromebook relies primarily on cloud-based storage. In place of many resident applications, Chromebook uses web-based applications that you access through the Google Web Store and Google Play Store. Because so many functions are obscure, some Chromebook settings — such as cloud printing, email vacation responders, and function keys — can be a little challenging to set up or use. This Cheat Sheet shows you how to take advantage of these functions and shortcut keys.
