Shutting down Chromebooks

 

It is very important to properly shut down Chromebooks at least once a week.

Good habit: Everyone shuts down on Fridays.

Reasons why it is important to shut down Chromebooks:

  • Updates may need to install

  • You may speed up the Chromebook.

  • If you shut down or reboot your computer, it can stop the programs running in the background and fix the crashes while rebooting the drivers properly, helping you enhance your device's performance.

  • Issues may resolve themselves by just shutting down the Chromebooks.
