Care and Handling

Screen Care

The Chromebook screen can be damaged if subjected to rough treatment.

● Try not to lean on top of the Chromebook with body weight.

● Refrain from placing heavy textbooks or other items thrown into a backpack on top of the Chromebook that could put pressure on the screen.

Cleaning your Chromebook

Clean the screen with a soft, dry antistatic, or microfiber cloth. Do not use window cleaner or any type of liquid on the Chromebook. You can also use packaged pre-moistened eyeglass lens cleaning tissues to clean the screen.

General Precautions

● No food or drink allowed near your Chromebook

● Insert cables into the Chromebook carefully.

● Never shove your Chromebook into a cabinet or wedge it into a book bag as this could break the screen.
