Chromebook shortcut keys

Using Chromebooks?
Here are a few keyboard shortcuts to help you work faster.

1. Show Keyboard Shortcut Overlay

If you only remember one of the shortcuts I mention in this article make it this one. This combination will bring up a guide to all of the keyboard shortcuts on your Chromebook.
2. Logout
Remember you are sharing these Chromebooks. If you want to keep your account safe you need to remember to log out. This shortcut will help you log out quick before you shut down.
3. Toggle Caps Lock On/Off
Our Chromebooks don’t have a Caps Lock key.  So when you want to write with ALL CAPS.Just hit the following key combo to turn it on, and turn it back off when you’re done.

4. Take a Screenshot on a Chromebook
To take a screenshot of the entire screen press the Ctrl key and the Switcher key at the same time.

If you want to select only part of the screen you can add the following combination.
It may take some practice to get used to using them but it will be worth it.
