  • Services that are entirely cloud-based can be accessed on a Chromebook.
  • Software designed for specific operating systems like Windows or Apple’s OS X or iOS will NOT run on a Chromebook.
    • However, if you use an online subscription to login to a particular service, even though you use a Windows program to use it on a desktop computer, it might offer a free Chrome app or extension you can use with your login.
  • First try a Google search in which you add the word “Chromebook” to the name of the software or service and that might yield support information.
    • If that doesn’t help, try searching for the website for your software or service and look for a Support or Technical Requirements link.
