Quick Ctrl of Chromebook Shortcuts

Chromebook Shortcuts
Can't find your bookmarks bar? Ctrl Shift B --and, POOF! They're back.

Want to bring up your files without going all the menu clicks? Alt Shift M ---and a separate file window will pop up where you can access your drive and your downloads!

Know that student is doing something on their chromebook but when you check all their tabs seem legit? 3 Finger Swipe Down on the mousepad and you have ALL their windows for view.

I wanted to share a few different shortcuts that might make your lives a little easier and faster! There are hundreds more available online, but I tried to give you the most frequently used or most helpful. Hopefully there is at least one new one that will help you out in a new way!
