Hi everyone! Poin2 Lab. here.
Microsotf announced a BIG news on this day of April 1st 2016, saying that they have finally released Windows 10 app for Chromebook. To this date you were only able to use Chrome browser within Windows OS not vice versa. But now you can. This means MS has finally admitted on the fact that Chromebooks have great security and speed. We can now use all these beloved plug-ins, active-x and whatnots on Chrome OS! (Trust us, we still have those in Korea.) It runs just so great on our Poin2 Chromebook.
Today in this post, we will show you how to install Windows 10 on your Chromebook. Begin by searching Windows 10 for Chrome on Chrome Web Store. It even got full five star rating already. Amazing!
Click Add to Chrome to install. Once done launch the Windows 10 app.
You will see an initial set up screen. You can press maximize button on the top right corner to use Window 10 in full screen.
Type in your name and other info then click OK. Installation will begin immediately. I was very impressed with how quick it was to complete installation. I think Microsotf did a really good job with making this app light and efficient. What you see on the top right corner is a ribbon menu with buttons for you to return to Chrome OS.
Almost done and I’m psyched!
Ta-dah! Next you will see the main screen. I don’t think Windows 10 for Chrome supports languages other than English for now. Too bad but I guess you could install Korean language pack from control panel?
As you can see, you can even login and transfer $ through online banking since we can install all the necessary security plugins.
What’s more, you can run League of Legends. OMG! you might be wondering how can a game like LOL with huge file size be installed on Chromebook? we realized that Windows 10 for Chrome installs all the programs on MS One Drive.
Can’t say enough of how awesome this new app is. Check it out for yourself!
Anyways, we hope you have a wonderful April fool’s day! 😀
(Sorry if you actually believed us. For those of you who love Chromebook, we love you too! xoxo 😉 )
