Multiple desktops on a Chromebook (2 ways to get to them) + a little extra tip

 If you (or your students) like to utilize multiple desktops on a Chromebook, you know how useful they can be to keep "things" organized.

If you do not use desktops, it is a great way to keep organized by storing all of one topic in each desktop (and naming them is nice as well).

The traditional way to access the desktops is to select the Show windows key (see image below).

If you would like to quickly access the desktops - you could also swipe up on your touchpad with three fingers.

  • If you close out one of your desktops you will see it side-by-side with one of your other desktops. Of course you could close the desktop out, or you could take the desktop and drag it to the side - as well as your other desktop and you could split screen them!
Embedded below is a 1 minute and 30 second YouTube tutorial followed by a 42 second YouTube tutorial showing how to have a split screen on your Chromebook.

Take care,
