When all else fails, you could try to re-set your chromebook.  This won't affect your account in any way, it will just re-set the chromebook to the way it was when you first received it in hopes that any setting that may have it behaving strangely are removed.  Here's how to do it:

JUST A REMINDER:  Do not install any extensions or apps onto your chromebook that are not for school.   Even something as innocent as a photo background can cause your chromebook to not work properly.  DO NOT INSTALL ANY extensions not used for your education.
