How to Force Quit Unresponsive Apps on a Chromebook

Oyetoke Tobi - Friday, July 15, 2016

Chromebooks are one of the easiest OS to use because of their simple nature. But, this doesn’t mean that Chrome OS is flawless or doesn’t have its own issues. As long as you are dealing with computers or devices, by chance you’ll always run into a glitch once in awhile which can cause some app or some certain things not to work. There’s a possibility that some apps might frozen or may not be responding due to insufficient RAM to process the operation the app is about to execute.

You can’t use the Ctrl+Alt+Delete shortcut key to open the task manager on a Chromebook, as you can on Windows laptop because there's no delete button on Chromebook. But there’s always a way you can do this on different platforms because this is just a common issue you’ll always run into.

So here's how to force quit an app on Chrome OS

Click on the menu button in your Chromebook's Chrome browser at the top right corner.



Then click on More Tools at the drop-down menu.


Then select Task Manager or just press Shift + Esc key.


Now select the app/program or process you would like to force quit and the click on End Process button at the bottom-right corner of the screen.


So your Chromebook may prompt you to restart the app through a pop-up menu at the bottom right of the screen.
