ChromeOS

Below is some general information concerning ChromeOS by Google.  The screen captures were taken on a Toshiba ChromeBook 2.

To right-click, perform a two-finger click or use the combination of Alt-click.

To take a screen capture of the entire screen, use the Ctrl key + the Windows Switcher key at the same time.

A Chromebook may not have a Delete key present.  Use the combination of Alt + Backspace as a substitute.

A task manager similar to Windows can be accessed via the combination of Shift + Esc.  To lock the screen, use the combination of Ctrl + Shift + L.  To quickly log out, use Ctrl + Shift + Q.  To view a list of keyboard shortcuts, use Ctrl + Alt + ?.
