How to connect your Chromebook to a Windows SMB/CIFS Share

In order to connect to the share you'll need to know the name or ip address the host and the domain name.

1. Install the Files System for SMB/CIFS and Windows
Go to the Chrome Web Store and search for SMB/CIFS, you'll find the File System for SMB/CIFS and Windows.

2. Go to the ChromeOS File manager and select Add new services

You'll see an option for "File System for SMB/CIFS and Windows".

3. Enter your credentials
In my experience I found that the domain name was case sensitive.
