Morning, Lets face facts, as nice as ChromeOS might be - the animations is a big fail from Google - this half-wit implementation is utterly slow and when you have alot of tabs and android apps open - extremely lagging. So.. lets kill it fire.. sortof anyway - ironicly - Google is here for the saving. Orginal link: https://appuals.com/disable-chromeos-window-animation/ First of all - You need to be in dev mode (face facts, doing anything cool with your chromebook requires that) - and before you can get into that - you will properly need to reset your device - meaning.. DO BACKUP. Anyway, once you are in dev mode, its fairly easy. 1. Popup a shell: CTRL+ALT+T 2. Type: shell (to open a shell) 3. Type: sudo su (to be come root) Now, we need to modify a file call chrome_dev.conf which is located in ETC, but changing that might cause it to be overwritten on a firmware update.. so lets make a copy of it and do a mount. Type this: cp /etc/chrome_dev.conf /usr/local mount --bind /usr/local/chrome_dev.conf /etc/chrome_dev.conf echo '--wm-window-animations-disabled' >> /etc/chrome_dev.conf restart ui exit This should effectively kill most animations and make your chromeos feel alot faster. //Leon
