Hi Graham,

Yes, once you install it, it will be in the launcher, then you can pin it to
the shelf and unpin Gmail.

All the best

Steve

Thanks Steve.

Will Inbox then appear as an app on the launcher once it is installed?  Is
it something that is there as well as Gmail?

Graham

Hi Graham,

Congratulations on coming into the world of ChromeVoxz.

Firstly, the non-Gmail mail app is called Inbox.  You can find it on the Web
Store.  It's not bad at all and reads your Gmail Email as well.

To get an app on the shefl, go into Launcher, find the app you want by
typing its name, so for example, Sheets, which is nbot on the shelf, but is
installed.  Then press Search and M for Menu, then arrow down to Pin To
Shelf.

You can also uninstall apps from there too.

All the best

Steve

Hi all.
After Steve and joe mentioned buying a chrome book I thought I would get one
and take a look.
I am impressed with chrome Cox for accessing the web and google docs.
I have tried gmail but while it's great for gmail accounts I want to read
other accounts and wondered what the best way of doing that is.
Also not all the apps I have appear on my shelf. How do I get to them all?
Lastly I bought a cheap chrome book that does not have a touch screen. Is
this ok or is the touch screen a must for decent accessibility with chrome
box?
Regards
Graham
