PowerWashing your Chromebook restores it to its factory state, returning Chrome OS to its original condition.

This may be necessary to fix some nagging Chromebook issues. You’ll also want to consider this step if you’re selling or giving away your Chromebook and want to remove all personal information and customization beforehand.

To PowerWash your Chromebook simply follow these steps:

  1. Open the Chrome browser.

  2. Click on the three vertically-aligned dots at the upper right-hand corner of your browser window.

  3. When the drop-down menu appears, select Settings.

  4. Scroll to the bottom and click Advanced.

  5. Scroll down to the Reset settings and select the Powerwash option.

  6. Restart your device should appear afterwards > Click Restart.

  7. Your Chromebook will now be restarted and the Powerwash process will complete.
