We reported on the imminent arrival of Virtual Desks for Chrome OS last week, but here’s the basic idea: just like MacOS, Windows, and most Linux Desktops, Chrome OS is getting ready to (finally) get virtual desktops. If you’ve been around here for any amount of time, you’ll know I’ve been waiting for this particular […]
We talk about a ton of stuff here at Chrome Unboxed. From Chromebooks to Chromecast to Google Assistant, the world of Chrome OS is pretty far-reaching. We save our News section for the things that are breaking news to our readers.
2018 finished up with a bang, offering us more quality choices in the Chromebook space than we’ve ever seen before. While I believe we’re in for some great devices in 2019 as well, many users are ready to buy a Chromebook right now and are needing to find a way to decide between all the […]
Asus predicted a March release date for their newest premium Chromebook and it appears they should be right on schedule if not early to the launch. Our good buddy Kevin Tofel of About Chromebooks has uncovered the FCC filing for the ASUS Chromebook C434 which is a good indicator that it will be available, at […]
One of my favorite parts of using a Chromebook is the ease of setting up secondary displays. I’ve yet to encounter a display that didn’t just work when attached to my Chromebook. Even with differences in scaling and DPI, moving windows between screens is fluid, easy, and the setup is painless. For me, using the […]
In early February, Google sent out a not-so-clear email to users of Google+ with this subject line: Your personal Google+ account is going away on April 2, 2019. As it turns out, that subject line wasn’t quite clear enough for a vast majority of users and there’s some confusion around the entire shut down that we’d like […]
Anchor tags are awesome little HTML tricks and when implemented properly, they can add a lot to a websites aesthetics. Not only that, they are very useful in assisting users in navigating quickly to specific areas of a webpage with ease. With some simple styling, I can lead you to a specific paragraph, image, video […]
Chrome OS 72 is officially available for the majority of Chrome devices but despite a lot of coverage stating it, Android 9 (Pie) appears to only be available on three Chromebooks that we know of at the moment. That may come as a disappointment to most of you who have been looking forward to features […]
Chromebook Offers are usually small, free gifts for Chromebook users that rotate in and out alongside the ever-present 100GB of free Drive storage. They don’t change too often and are usually simple things like exclusive Roblox add-ons. While my daughter loves getting these types of freebies, many Chromebook users simply forget or completely ignore the […]
About a week ago, news began rolling out from the G Suite Blog about an update to Gmail that introduced a highly-productive new feature: a right-click context menu from the inbox view. From this menu, you can now right-click (two-finger click) any message in your inbox and get a myriad of quick options without ever […]
One of the few features we have longed for on Chrome OS for as long as I can remember is the ability to have multiple desktops. While it may seem trivial to some, “virtual desktops” are an integral part of a lot of user’s workflow and seeing the Chromium team give them some attention is […]
A question we frequently field here at Chrome Unboxed goes something like this: “What’s the best Chromebook for less than $XXX?” Sometimes that number is $200, and sometimes that number is $500. Other times, I’ve answered that same question and the number was $1000.
Chrome OS 72 has officially been pushed to the Stable channel but as many of you have discovered, not every Chromebook has received the update, yet. A second push from the Chromium server rolled out last night and the number of devices on 72 Stable is now somewhere around one hundred twenty-five. Still, if you […]
