#87 Chromebook - 3 Keyboard Shortcuts every Chrome OS User should know

Hi ya!

Chrome OS has a lot of keyboard shortcuts.
From Alt + Shift + S launching the Status Menu, to Ctrl + Shift + Q (twice) logging you out.

There’s 3 keyboard shortcuts that you should know!

#1. Launch “Get Help” App
If you’re new to Chrome OS, then the Get Help app is what you need!
Ctrl + / is the keyboard command.
For more information, check out this blog post.

#2. Caps Lock
If you’re one of those angry gamers, or if you’re writing something that requires capital letters, then knowing the Caps Lock command is for you.
Alt + Search Key is the keyboard command.
Please note:
For me, I have to hold down the keys for awhile before Caps Lock has been enabled.

#3. Task Manager
If Chrome is running slow on your Chromebook, then ending some processes in the Task Manager might help.
Shift + Esc is the keyboard command.

And that is the 3 keyboard shortcuts that every Chrome OS user should know!

If you’d like to learn more, you can check out the Google Help Center.
If you have a specific question that the Help Center doesn’t cover, then you can ask your question on the Google Product Forum.
