  1. Chromebook german keyboard, primary language english. All spell checkers off. BUT typing in gmail or facebook vhromebook changes english to some german some english, pure crazy.

  2. This only works if you can read the language that it got set to. We cannot read anything and therefore cannot find these headings. Everything is in Russian we believe.
