  • Taking screenshots on a Chromebook

    Chromebooks offer two different ways to capture screenshots natively. You can either capture the full screen or a part of the screen.

    Holding Control and pressing the Switch Windows key will capture a screenshot.

    If you have a Chromebook with a 360-degree hinge, you can press the Power + Volume Down button, this is similar to an Android device.

    In order to capture just a part of your screen, press Control + Shift + Switch Window. Doing so will change the mouse into a crosshair. You can click and drag the crosshair over the part of the screen that you wish to save.

    A notification pop up that appears at the lower right-hand corner of the screen will let you know if the screengrab was successful. All the screenshots can be found in the Download folder.


  • Right-Clicking on a Chromebook

    Similar to screenshots, there are two ways to perform the right-click action on your Chromebook. The most common method to do this is by using the trackpad. Move the mouse to whatever item that you wish to right-click on, after this, tap the trackpad with two fingers at the same time.

    The lesser-known method is by using the keyboard. Press and hold the Alt key then tap the trackpad with one finger instead of two.


  • Rotate the screen on a Chromebook

    There are occasions where it might be more practical to use your device in a portrait rather than landscape view. This is a useful trick to know if you need to flip your screen 180 degrees. Rotating the screen is quite an easy thing to do as well. You can move through 90-degree turns by pressing Control + Shift + Refresh. You can only rotate your device in a clockwise direction.


  • How to Print on a Chromebook
