Touch-friendly controls are coming to Chrome OS

New touch-friendly Chrome OS specifically designed for touch compatible devices. SCREENGRAB YOUTUBE

Google has slowly been changing Chrome OS to make it work better with touchscreens. Google, too, released their first higher-end Chromebook with a touchscreen on it - the first Google Chromebook Pixel. Google has now made a decision to take advantage of these touchscreens with an updated launcher for Chrome OS, showcased on the latest Canary build. This version of the web-aimed operating system has a new way to access apps and search.

As you can see in the video, the new touch-friendly launcher sits at the bottom of the screen with just the Google search bar and suggested apps visible. If so, head into chrome://flags/#enable-fullscreen-app-list and restart Chrome. You also get the ability to trigger a voice search with a simple tap of the finger. The video is a very brief demonstration of what's possible in this new build of Chrome OS in the Canary channel. Make sure you press Ctrl + D when your system boots so that you can directly get into developer mode without verification. When this build is open (to developer mode), press Ctrl + Alt + T.

After experiencing the new night mode, if you can't stand the buggy performance anymore, then it is time to get back to the stable channel. You'll be in Canary!

Mavericks trade Hammons to Heat for center McRoberts
He returned, found his way into the starting lineup and then in December was out again with a stress fracture in the left foot. The move frees much-needed salary cap space for Miami, which owed McRoberts just over $ 6 million for next season.

Press Ctrl + Alt + T and type "shell" command. After that, type "sudo su" and then enter this command - "update_engine_client -channel=stable-channel -update". Now, you gotta press "Ctrl + Shift + Q" twice to sign out.

Then, press the Search key, which works a bit like the Windows key on Windows PCs: It displays the app launcher, instead of a Start menu. SlashGear is not responsible for any actions the user takes.
