Doug Winnie introduces you to Chrome OS—a new type of operating system from Google, which is designed to be fast, web-oriented, and integrated with Google apps and services. It runs exclusively on Chromebooks and Chromeboxes, the Google-branded computers.

This course explains the differences between Chrome and other operating systems like Windows or Mac OS X, and its advantages and disadvantages in relation to these traditional counterparts. You'll also learn how to navigate the OS user interface, work with files, install and manage apps, and customize the Chrome interface for that personalized touch.
