They don’t have the mass-market appeal of Macs or Windows machines, but Chromebooks are great alternatives. They boot up quickly, are safer, and are usually much less expensive than the competition.

Chromebooks also have a leg-up on the competition in another area: updates. Not only is it easy to update your Chromebook, but updates only take a few minutes to download and install. By the time PCs and Macs finish updating, you’re up and running with your Chromebook. Here’s our step-by-step guide on how to perform a Chromebook update.

How to update your Chromebook

  1. Connect your Chromebook to the internet over Wi-Fi or ethernet.
  2. Click on the settings tray in the bottom-right corner of the screen.
  3. Enter the settings using the gear icon.
  4. Click on “About Chrome OS” on the bottom of the left column.
  5. Select the “Check for updates” option.
  6. Once the update finishes downloading, click “Restart.”
