It is a Toshiba/Chrome laptap and I nothing about Chrome. I don't even think it has windows on it. It has Google installed on it. My problem is that this was bought for my Mother-in-law and she is quite old and everything needs to be right in front of her in order for her to catch on. I can set all of her games up and have them as tabs, but she can't figure it out. If I could put the games as icons on the desktop she may be able to figure it out. I am use to Windows but nothing seems to be the same with this laptop.
