I have installed and am using Chrome Remote Desktop, but for whatever reason it doesn't show up in the Chrome Apps window. The only way I can open it is to head to the Chrome Store page for Remote Desktop and click "Launch."

Kind of a pain. Anyone know why it wouldn't show in my Apps window?

Hey guys.  As you've been so helpful I thought I'd share my thought process and initial experience of the Chromebook here with you and a huge thank you for your help with my questions and I am sure there will be a few more:

Well I finally did it I got a Chromebook.  Anyone that knows me knows that I love technology and always want to try everything related to technology and I've finally done it and got a Chromebook.  ...

Hi +Wesley Files yeah that was one of the the first things I installed on my other PC's just in case I need access to them.  It was going to make it into my next blog post about the Acer once I have time to play with it a bit more and see how it suits me.

So I have my Acer C720 and its working great even after only 5 minutes of use.  I have one quick question.  Do I need to burn a recovery image for it on to USB.  There is nothing about doing this in the instructions but remember seeing a YouTube video about doing it.

Would be interested in an answer to my question. Thanks.
 
Really interesting article about a story that broke 2 weeks ago. Does anyone make money from developing Chrome apps? #chrome

Does anyone know of some simple game examples that can be developed in the #chrome   Dev Editor, preferably using the Chrome App template.  It would be useful for teaching my kids programming on their #chromebook . something really simple like pong, or just moving something around the screen.

Hey there Chrome OS folks. If you're interested in seeing more Chrome OS in the classroom, a good friend of mine is trying to get Chromebooks for his class. He needs a bit of help because friends and family can only contribute so much. He's very involved with technology in the classroom, and already has several Chromebooks in the class and they work well for them. Even my old Cr-48 is being put to good use! :)

Anything you can contribute would be great.

Wow,
Google Chrome uses 130% of my CPU, with another 43.8% of my CPU used by Google Chrome Helper
No wonder that my macbook pro becomes so slow :)

+Warren Pena Not sure here
But usually my performance bottleneck is Gmail.
I use it pretty much since it exists (1st april 2004) and I have there :
- 5 113 contacts
- 86 285 conversations
- 12,72 GB (just for gmail, total about 45GB for my google accounts)

I would like to know if or when Adobe Creative Cloud could be used through Chrome or Drive?  That is the only thing holding me back from completely changing over to a Chrome Book.  That or a Google version of Adobe Acrobat????

I really like how Google developed Google Docs, can't they compete with Adobe now and make a great pdf program that would show Adobe how over-priced their products have become?

Does anyone else believe there is an identity crisis with the term Chrome ?

Sometimes I have a hard time identifying whether someone is talking about a Chrome Browser or Chrome OS. Same goes for Chromebooks. Can there be discussion about Chromeboxes in a Chromebook Community? I see a lot of questions like "How do you do this and that in Chrome?" Well it depends on if you mean browser or OS.

Someone could even see me in my vehicle and easily say..."You must like Chrome" where I may need to say, yes, yes, and yes. LOL

PS; this is not my vehicle really, but my real vehicle does have much chrome 😎

Hi! Does anyone have feedback to offer on wether Evernote runs smoothly on a chromebook once you have a lot of data.
Any cool Chrome extension or Chrome app to know?

Bonus question : is there a way to mass export notes that are stored on an excel file or a google sheets to evernote ? Basically I have a column with thousands of memos that should each be exported to a note in evernote

New commits show work on bringing reversible USB Type-C to Chrome OS.

While it's not definitive proof that Chrome OS devices with the new USB spec are on their way anytime soon, a number of development boards have commits relating to the reversible and faster USB plug.

#USB   #ChromeOS   #Chrome
Recent commits to the Chromium source code appear to show that Chrome developers are experimenting with support for the new reversible USB spec.

Hi all, 

This question has probably been asked before, but I can't seem to find a definitive answer.  I am currently thinking about getting a Chromebook and was wondering how long the support life span will be on them?

Say for example if I got the Samsung Series 3 can anyone give a ball park figure how long it would be supported for?

The Acer screen (which I was intending to buy) was just a wee bit too small for my old eyeballs.  The Toshiba's 13.3 inch screen, on the other hand, IMO is just right.  I snagged one last night and LOVE it!

I also pricematched it at Best Buy with a KMart ad and got $30 knocked off.  $249 out the door and only $50 more than the Acer.
