How to install WPS Office 2019 on a Chromebook

Please have a look at my improved revised tutorial, thanks!

Today we are looking at how to install WPS Office 2019 on a Chromebook.  Please follow the video/audio guide as a tutorial where we explain the process step by step and use the commands below.

We start this tutorial by changing some settings in Chrome OS for Linux Apps to fix potential graphical errors and mouse pointer errors.  Then we download and install WPS Office.  After that, we show how to create, save, and open documents and lastly we show how to change the language interfaces of WPS Office if required.

If you have any questions, please contact us via a YouTube comment and we would be happy to assist you!

Please take note that with the release of Chrome OS 90,  the location of Linux Apps has been changed in the Chromebook’s settings.  Have a look at this tutorial, to see how to turn on Linux apps and then continue with the installation tutorial.
