The Launch Bar

The launch bar on a Chromebook looks slightly different than the taskbar on a Windows-based machine. Students will notice three icons on the bottom left of the screen that will navigate them to the following:
A student's Files Folder can be launched from the Apps Launcher.  All downloaded content and Google Drive items can be accessed from this location.  If you would like to move the Files Folder, or any other App, to the Launch Bar simply right click the item you wish to move and select pin to launch bar.  
The battery life indicator, settings menu and wireless network availability menu are located on the bottom right of the screen.  The streamlined taskbar and inability to place items on the desktop create a clean, simplified look for students.
