Chromebooks are the perfect laptop for people on the go.  For students or working professionals in need of instant mobile productivity, a Chromebook is a great budget-friendly choice instead of a full Windows or MACOS laptop.

From surfing the internet, playing cloud-based games, or performing daily office tasks such as editing spreadsheets, pdfs, or presentations, a Chromebook may be the perfect device for you.

However, Chromebooks do have some drawbacks. 

Here's why you should look into A Shiro Chan keyboard.

Once the app is loaded, click ‘Options’ located on the bottom right of the keyboard.

Click ‘Turn on numeric keypad’ to show the keypad on the layout.

Once the NumLock button is visible, just toggle on and off.


Launch Key Replaces the Windows Key

No Fn Keys—No Problem!

You might have noticed that all Chromebooks do not use Fn Keys.  For Windows users, this might be a huge drawback for professionals who use specific Fn key shortcuts for work to boost productivity.  If Fn keys are needed, you can easily replace specific shortcut keys and map Fn keys of your choice using Microsoft’s PowerToys.
