Google has finally added an option to restart Chromebooks. You can now restart your Chromebook by clicking the power button and then choosing Restart.
Restarting a Chromebook
A note before we start. The menu item to restart is not available in all Chrome OS versions yet. If you do not see this option on your Chromebook yet, wait a few more weeks and try again.
To restart a Chromebook, first, click the system tray area. This is the bottom-right corner of your Chromebook desktop where the time and battery icons are displayed.
Next, click the power button.
You will now see a menu with additional options. Choose Restart.
I hope you were able to restart your Chromebook without any issues. Ask your questions in the comments form below.
