How to use the Files app on a Chromebook – By Jeramy Johnson

You may have read that a Chromebook is just a glorified browser, but nothing could be further from the truth.

You can manage how your files and data are stored on your Chromebook via the Files app. I'll show you where to find the Files app on your device, and how you can organize things to your liking.
