Welcome to Chromebook Guide
Hello and welcome to Chromebook Guide, an unofficial support site for Chromebook users looking for help with their Chromebooks.
My name is James Welbes, and I am a Top Contributor in Google’s Chromebook Central product forum. This website started out as a Google Doc that I used as a sort of canned answer resource; a place I could keep answers to common questions that users ask in the forum so I wouldn’t have to type them from scratch each time (the canned answers feature of the forum was not available at the time).
Eventually I turned the document into a website for organizational purposes, and I started to notice a significant amount of traffic. I realized that this website had the potential to do more than provide me with answers I can copy and paste into the forum. It’s actually helping many people every day find answers to common questions and issues.
So now I maintain this website with that in mind. I’m constantly laboring over how I can improve the website’s SEO so more people can find it, and how to improve the content so it’s actually useful when they do.
This website is not an all-inclusive resource for Chromebook users. There are many questions and issues that arise and I simply cannot address them all. My goal is to provide high quality answers for a handful of common subjects, such as virus/malware/bad extension issues, how to print from your Chromebook, what you can, and cannot install on a Chromebook and some general how-tos.
If you have a question that this website does not address, I encourage you to visit Google’s official Chromebook Central product forum, myself and the other volunteers will do our best to help you out.
If you’re trying to decide which Chromebook you should buy, you may find my Chromebook filtering tool helpful. This tool helps you pick the best Chromebook for you by letting you select the features you’re looking for, and displaying only the models that match those features.
Thanks for visiting!
