Chrome OS 107 rolling out with Desks improvements
Google has been doing quiet Chrome OS releases in the past couple of months but the latest version 107 seems to be a bigger deal than usual as it brings a couple of new features. More precisely, expands the currently available ones.
The biggest new addition is the ability to save Desks. You can “Save desk for later” from the Overview screen with just a click of a button. You can assign a name, see the creation date and have a quick glance at the icons.
Closing open desks from the Overview menu is now easier and a brief “Undo” prompt pops-up in case you closed the desk by accident and you want to revert. Google is reportedly testing a merge feature as well, so you can combine opened Desks into one.
The Recent view in the Files app gets a new design along with a “documents” filter. Additionally, the list below is arranged by date instead of just a plain old list. And lastly, there’s now a pop-up list with accented characters once you hold down on the virtual or even the physical keyboard. If that doesn’t work, you might have to enable the flag in Chrome.
