Problems Connecting to Zoom?
If you are asked for a Meeting passcode in Zoom, look in Schoology/Google Classroom to see if you teacher has that passcode posted (it's often right under the Zoom link). If not, clear your cookies/cache (instructions). Then click the Zoom link again from Schoology or Google Classroom. If you are still asked for a passcode, clear your cache a second time and double-check that you set the Time Range to All Time. Then restart your computer. Don't just log off--choose Shutdown or Restart. Then login, go to Schoology/Classroom & try the link again. The second cache clear combined with a restart often works. If you still can't connect, call the school at 303-982-5600 and ask for the library. It’s much easier to troubleshoot over the phone than via email, so please call versus emailing Mrs. Jonson.
Three Steps for Troubleshooting Many Device Problems
Step 1 - Clear Cookies & Cache. It's amazing how many times this fixes all sorts of problems. Use the 3 dots in Chrome & choose History (CTRL + H is the shortcut; CMD + Y on a Mac). Select Clear Browsing Data. Change the Time Range to "All Time". Select "Cookies..." and "Cached Images..." Select Clear Data
Step 2 - Completely power down your device (push and hold the power button (on the side of newer Chromebooks) for 30+ seconds (not just until the screen turns black). Wait 30 more seconds. Power the device back on.
Step 3 - Clean up Extensions, & Search Engines . Extensions are one of the most common causes of Chromebook issues (especially Grammarly). Toggle off or delete any extensions you are not using.
Issue: Keyboard keys display the wrong letter when pushed.
Fix: Set your keyboard style back to US (not INT'L, UK, or anything else).
