You can enable the Lock on Lid Close settings option by going to settings, click security and privacy, and choose Lock screen and login followed by Lock when sleeping or close the lid.

With Offices, you now have the option to save and close an entire virtual office with apps and windows saved in the layout you opened them in. This will make it easier to return to what interests you when switching between different virtual offices. You can access this by clicking Show windows a key and choose Save the office for later.

Smaller features in this version include dark mode support for Canvas and Cursive apps, as well as the option to create a desk for each project or task you’re working on, then close all open tabs and windows with just one click.

As always, you can upgrade to ChromeOS 107 easily today. Your Chromebook should download the update automatically, but you can force it to your system by going to Settings app and choose About ChromeOS and then Check for updates. Your Chromebook will then prompt you to restart.
