*Starting in 2017, new Chrome OS devices will not support stand-alone “consumer” kiosk mode. Chrome device management will be required for kiosk mode.

Configuring a Chrome device for Stand-alone Kiosk Mode:

Part 1 – Reset Device To Factory Settings

  1. Power device OFF
  2. Connect keyboard and mouse
  3. Insert paper clip in reset hole next to SD card slot (Next to the lock slot, to the left of the SD slot)
  4. While holding the paperclip in, press and release the power button to turn the box on
  5. A screen will appear that says “Chrome OS is missing…”
  6. Release the paperclip
  7. Press CTRL + D
  8. Press and release the reset button once using the paperclip, the box will reboot quickly
  9. A screen will appear that says “OS verification is OFF”
  10. Press CTRL + D.  The Chromebox will reboot and transition to developer mode.  This will clear all data and takes approximately 10 minutes.
  11. After step 10 is complete, press SPACE at the bootup screen, then press ENTER to confirm returning to verified mode.
  12. The device will reboot and enter verified mode.

 

The device is now reset and you should be at the welcome screen
