Chromebook Laptop

I got an Acer  Chromebook 15 for Christmas in 2018. I'm still learning it.

Is there an easy way to add  things to my Chromebook? I read that Chromebooks

don't need anti-virus. It has a built in Anti-virus. Do I still have to get an anti-virus?

No antivirus required for chrome books it’s true.


But, if you get one of those pesky false warning that a virus has been detected by somewhere you’ve surfed.


Clearing your browser history generally helps to lose it, from re-appearing.


Have learned that after repairing a few for people who insisted it must be true.


To add an app or extension to the chrome book go to- Chrome Webstore.


Best I can offer on an apple and can’t easily recall chromebook.



And yes, after long days/nights, I'd still like to swing these hunks of glass , plastic and silicon against the nearest wall Come on retirement!
