Chromebooks use a different operating system than Windows or MacOS, called ChromeOS that make it difficult to run Microsoft Office.  In addition, if you are using an HCC Chrombook, you may not be able to install programs.  However, as a student, you have access to Microsoft Office 365 which is provided by HCC. It includes a cloud-based version of Office complete with Word Online, Excel Online, and PowerPoint Online. You can also use your Google Drive, including Docs, Sheets, and Slides, or any other online program you can normally access from a web browser.
