Does anyone know how to change the Google+ stream from two to three columns in ChromeOS. I have a Toshiba CB35 and cannot seem to get beyond two columns even though there seems to be plenty of real estate for a third one.
The only setting is for one column vs multi-column - you cannot choose the number of additional columns. You could try zooming out the page by holding the Ctrl key and tapping the minus key. I have one machine I managed to bump from two columns to three this way.
i have the 14in hp chromebook, after switching to the beta channel hotword detection works for a day or so, then inexplicably stops working (the microphone is hollow) and i can't find the setting anywhere (privacy, etc) what am I missing? if I powerwash it comes right back for a while then goes away again.

Has anyone had any luck getting an external touchscreen monitor to work with Chrome OS? I've paired a Dell S2340T with a Samsung Chromebook and an Acer C720, but neither seems to (completely) work.
Chrome OS recognizes touches, but those touches only register as clicks on certain features.
- I can launch Chrome via touch, and I can create new tabs and close existing tabs within Chrome. I can expand Chrome's settings. I can maximize, restore, minimize and close Chrome. I can even touch and drag the Chrome window around the screen. - I cannot click any links within any page Chrome is rendering, or change any of Chrome's settings. I cannot expand the System Tray. Touching these features treat the feature as if I'm hovering over it with a cursor.
I'd like to pick up a few Asus Chromeboxes for kiosk use, but I need to be sure that users will be able to navigate from page to page within a webapp via touchscreen.
Part of me thinks it's just this monitor, but that doesn't seem likely since it's able to register touches as clicks on some events. I haven't been able to dig up much about people trying to do this. Any ideas?
