Chromebook Tips, Tricks, and Troubleshooting

Having trouble with your Chromebook?

1) Power Off your Chromebook. You may use the power button in the upper right hand corner of the Chromebook. Once it turns off, count to 10 and press the power button again. The Chromebook will install the updates in 30 seconds and turn on.

2) If you see a yellow yield sign in the password area of your user picture, click in the upper right hand side of the user picture, select "Remove this person" and then "Remove this user". This removes the corrupted user profile. Sign in again with your username and Computer password. You will need to set up the VMWare App again. Follow the instructions below. You will need to setup your Arctic Academy Folder again. Follow the How-To videos on this menu.
