Search your apps and the web from your apps list. On a Chromebook, this key is located on the side, where you would normally find the Caps Lock key.

If you are using a regular keyboard, the Windows key in between Ctrl and Alt will work as the search key.

To turn Caps Lock on temporarily, press Alt + Search Key.

Pressing the Search Key brings up the search box and apps list. The search box allows you to search both the Internet and apps list at the same time.
