What do the top row buttons of my Chromebook do?
Look at the image below. The top row buttons have been labeled F1 - F10 to make it easier to explain. Google Support explains what each of these keys do:
Some special keys sit along the top of Chromebook keyboards. If you're using a Windows keyboard with your Chromebook, the F keys at the top of the keyboard will work just like the keys below.
| Go to the previous page in your browser history (F1)
| Go to the next page in your browser history (F2)
| Reload your current page (F3)
| Enter Immersive mode, which hides the tabs and launcher (F4)
| Enter Overview mode, which shows all windows (F5)
| Decrease screen brightness (F6)
| Increase screen brightness (F7)
| Mute (F8)
| Decrease the volume (F9)
| Increase the volume (F10)
|Search your apps and the web at the same time. On a Chromebook, this key is located on the side, where you'd normally find the Caps Lock key. If you're using a regular keyboard, the Windows key in between Ctrl and Alt will work as the search key.Tip: To turn Caps lock on temporarily, press Alt + the search key.
