Starting today, Google will begin to distribute Chrome OS 102, which includes a few noteworthy updates. The upcoming weeks will see the full release of this updated edition.
Chromebooks warn you when USB-C cables don’t support a display or aren’t operating as they should for your laptop because of the variety in accessories. If it doesn’t support the high performance USB4/Thunderbolt 3 standards that your Chromebook does, a notification will also be displayed. Alerts are readily available for:
Displays may not be supported by cable. Your USB-C cable might not correctly connect to screens. Cable could affect output. Your USB-C cable is incompatible with USB4. Device performance might be constrained. Thunderbolt is not supported by your USB-C cable. Your gadget can handle more data than your cable can handle. My team now reads the specific identification information that every USB-C cable provides to the computer (using USB PD), which eliminates a quiet failure that occurs when a user connects a USB 2.0-only cable to a DP Dock or Monitor.
First made available on 11th and 12th generation Intel Core devices with USB 4 or Thunderbolt capability, this system Chrome OS alert links to more information . This occurs as more Chromebook-compatible docks and displays become available.
You may resize the zoomed-in area of the magnification tool in Chrome OS 102. The top half can be made larger or smaller by dragging the in-between partition instead of being divided evenly.
To open a folder in the Files applications navigation drawer, double-tap on a ZIP file today. You must physically eject it after manually saving its contents to the Downloads folder. The right-click menu in Chrome OS 102 now has an Extract All option that adds a folder directly to the directory you are currently browsing. Actually, this ought to be the double-click default action.
Last year, Cursive was introduced together with the HP Chromebook X2 and a few other devices. It is currently going out to all Chromebooks that allow styluses and will come preinstalled on qualified devices. In the upcoming months, Google intends to update the Cursive PWA ( Progressive Web App ) to make it simpler to alter the stylus stroke’s thickness, style, and color.
