You must be connected to wifi before you log into your device for the first time. Also ensure they Chromebook keyboard is "US" not "US Intl".

If they forget their password, any of their current teachers can reset the password.
Call or email one of their teachers to have it reset.
If you intend to take a full-screen screenshot, then please follow the steps mentioned below:
Find the Switch window button on the top row of the buttons, in between the Fullscreen and Brightness down buttons. This can be considered as analogous to the conventional F5 button on the normal keyboards.
After the screenshot is taken, its thumbnail appears in the bottom-right corner of the Chromebook. You can click it to go directly to the folder where it is stored or else, you can view it later by the Files option in the taskbar.
