Chromebook Adjust Special Keys and Caps Lock

Chromebooks come with a special search key to help quickly search the web. To type capital letters, users can make the search key work like the caps lock key. Similarly you can also adjust the way the Ctrl and Alt keys work on the Setting oage.

Change Key Behaviour
  1. Sign in to Chromebook.
  2. Click the status area in the lower-righ corner, where the account picture appears.
  3. Click Settings.
  4. In the Device section, click Keyboard Settings.
  5. Use the menus to adjust the behaviour of the search, Ctrl and Alt keys.
  6. Click OK.
More about the Search Key

Pressing the Search key brings up the search box and apps list. The search box allows you to search both the Internet and apps list at the same time.

Using a regular Keyboard?

The Windows key in between Ctrl and Alt will work as the Search key.

To make room for the Search Key the Caps Lock key is taken away, but if you really need the Caps Lock, you can turn it on temporarily by pressing Alt + the Search key. Press it again to turn it off.
