  • Looking for caps lock? Press ALT + SEARCH: Chromebooks do not have a dedicated caps lock button. You get a Search key instead.
  • You can configure the Search key to do other things. Go to the settings page and search for Keyboard Settings. On Keyboard Settings page, Search drop down menu is what you are looking for. You can set it to work as Alt, Ctrl , Caps Lock or disable it.
  • For Home key, press  CTRL + ALT + Up Arrow. For End key, press CTRL + ALT + Down Arrow.  For Delete key, press ALT + Backspace. You can use the same keyboard shortcut for deleting files from the file manager and Google Drive.
  • To lock your Chromebook screen, press SEARCH + L.
