Almost every student in Shakopee High School uses their MacBook regularly, but not always efficiently. There are numerous and very simple tricks to keep your MacBook in the best condition possible. Many students come to the Tech Desk because their MacBook is running slow or Chrome isn’t working. The most common solution is to make sure your chrome is fully updated, if not a red arrow appears in the top right hand corner of your browser. To update the user has to close out of Chrome and go to Self Service. Once in Self Service click the update category.
