Fix for Using Google Chrome on Your SMART Board

Are you a fan of Google’s Chrome web browser, but have found that it doesn’t work well on your SMART Board?  If you’re like me, there are too many things to like about Chrome – from the simple, streamlined look to the speed and seamless integration with my Google Apps content – to have to abandon it when I need to use the web on my SMART Board.

The issue with using Chrome on a SMART Board involves the inability to click on links or click-and-drag items from the SMART Board while viewing web pages in Chrome.  Fortunately, this issue can be easily fixed in just a few steps!  Just follow the instructions below and you’ll put the shine back in Chrome on your SMART Board (Note: you may need administrator privileges on your computer to apply the change permanently):
