    Chromebook lockdown - anyone know how?

    Hi All,

    School is looking at rolling out some chromebooks

    We have 1 for testing - and it is enrolled onto our Google Apps Management console

    1) I can choose to only allow certain Apps to run which is good - but Google Store, Get Help and Files Apps are still appearing even though they are not in the allow list - anyone know how to remove them?

    2) Is there a way to lockdown access to settings - for such things as wifi were it can be turned off, and for chrome browser settings

    The google management console just doesn't seem to go quite far enough to secure the chromebooks for student use.

    As an update to this I have at least worked out how to ban the chrome webstore.

    Our Google Apps console is split into User OU's and so I can enforce settings on just students.

    Under the Chrome > User Settings I was able to add url's that arent allowed - so added https://chrome.google.com/webstore - worked a treat to stop students installing apps from the webstore

    I can then force pre-install apps of our choosing.

    Still not found any way to sort out the Files App! Or stop them disabling wifi etc in settings
