The one thing lacking or is unpolished on a Chromebook is the file manager. This matters to those folks who are techie in their nature and are into file management. I am one of those people. Fortunately, most newer Chromebooks allow you to install Linux (or activate it) on your Chromebook. Once activated; another world is opened. As a result, I started looking around at file managers that run on the Linux platform that would play along with my Chrome OS file structure. What I found, at “Chrome Unboxed” was a review on “Nemo”, a Linux based file manager (that features dual panes, tabs, etc…). After installing Nemo (which took about 4 to 5 minutes) and jumping through a few hoops I feel pretty good about Nemo in that I can now “reliably” access and manage all the files on my Chromebook, in addition to the file shares that I have on the network in my home.
If you are interested in giving “Nemo” a try, follow the source links below…

If you are the proud owner of a Chromebook that has the Linux OS option baked in, you can download and install the WPS Office Suite (for FREE). Download from the link below. Once the page loads, click on “Download”, select the “DEB Package”. Once downloaded onto the Chromebook, go into the file manager, right click on the DEB file, and select install. Following the install go into the Chromebook’s launcher and locate Linux apps. There you will find WPS.

Tails uses the Tor network to protect your privacy online and help you avoid censorship. Enjoy the Internet like it should be.
If you own a Chromebook that is Linux compatible (and have the Linux OS turned “on”), you may want to install the FREE (2018) version of Softmaker FreeOffice. Softmaker FreeOffice is very compatible with Microsoft Word, Powerpoint and Excel. For home-based computer use, you cannot beat the price = $0 … What I like about FreeOffice is the simplicity and the fact that you can install it on your Chromebook (and on Windows and Android devices).
