The recently released ChromeOS 107 has changes to the Recent Files filter and Virtual Desks.

Google has started to release ChromeOS version 107. The update gives Chromebooks five improvements.
Today, Chromebooks all over the world are receiving ChromeOS version 107 from Google. With this update, ChromeOS receives five enhancements, the most significant of which speeds up handling of recently used files that you may have previously accessed and need rapid access to.
This is due to changes made to the recent files filter in ChromeOS 107. You should note that the recent files filter in the Files app is now divided into various time periods as opposed to ChromeOS 106. Even a new document filtering option is available. The functionality is already enabled and doesn’t require any further action.
Other than that, Desks have two noteworthy features that you’ll notice, along with changes to the way your Chromebook is locked. With the latest Chromebooks, you may lock your laptop as the lid closes without pausing your current session. According to Google, if you utilise the current Show lock screen after waking from sleep settings page, it now also functions to lock the screen when shutting the lid. By heading to Settings, selecting Security and Privacy, and then selecting Lock screen and sign-in followed by Lock when sleeping or lid is closed, you can activate the Lock on Lid Close settings option.
You now have the choice to save and close a full virtual desk in addition to preserving the apps and windows in the configuration you had it open in using Desks. This should make switching between different virtual desks and returning to what matters to you simple. By selecting Save desk for later while pressing the Show Windows key, you can access this.
Smaller enhancements in this edition include the ability to establish a workstation for each activity or project you’re working on and to quickly close all active tabs and windows. Dark mode support for the Canvas and Cursive apps is also included.
As usual, upgrading to ChromeOS 107 is simple right now. The update should be downloaded automatically by your Chromebook, but you may force it by navigating to the Settings app, selecting About ChromeOS, and then Check for updates. You will then be prompted to restart your Chromebook.
Google was developing diacritical keyboard support. These are the accents and symbols that can be found on characters in many different languages. Although it is still in the experimental stage, ChromeOS 107 supports this functionality and makes good use of it. Visit chrome:/flags#enable-cros-diacritics-on-physical-keyboard-longpress to activate it. When enabled, you can press any key on your physical keyboard while holding down any other key to view and select from the alternatives.
We previously believed that a Chromebook is automatically locked when the lid is closed. Evidently not. In any event, the ChromeOS 107 release includes a setting to make sure this occurs. It may be found in Settings in the Security and Privacy menu.
The Chromebook can be sent to sleep when the lid is closed using the Power setting, which is distinct from this. This is a little perplexing to me, but there you go. Click the Security and Privacy options to make sure your Chromebook is locked when you close the screen.
