Chromebook keyboard shortcuts

  • There are a few keyboard shortcuts that sometimes get activated by mistake when a student takes an exam in high-security mode.

    The keyboard shortcuts are shown below:

    • CTRL+SHIFT+SPACE (Changes keyboard language.)

    • CTRL+PLUS (Zooms in.)

    • CTRL+MINUS (Zooms out.)

    • CTRL+SEARCH+D (Shows a zoomed mode on the upper half of the screen.)

    • CTRL+SEARCH+M (Enlarges the full screen.)

    • CTRL+SEARCH+H (Inverts all colors.)

    • CTRL+ALT+Z (Chromevox. May show an orange box around the text.)

    • SEARCH+PERIOD (.) (Overwrites, i.e. replaces text instead of inserting it.)
