Can't Figure out How to Activate Offline Docs

I have a Samsung Series 3 Chromebook, and even though I have seen several web pages detailing how to use Google Docs/Drive/Sheets offline, I just can't seem to figure out how to do it!

Most directions state that I need to go my Google Docs or Sheets page in the Chrome browser, click on the menu icon in the upper left corner, select 'Settings', then pick 'work offline'.

However, when I follow these directions, the Settings only have a single option, which is to change the language. Nothing there about online/offline. I could sure use the help. Thank you in advance.

On a related rant, why the &^%$#! do high-end hotel conference venues charge for Wi-Fi? The last two conferences I attended, at a Hilton and a Sheraton, both wanted $25-$35 from me to access Wi-Fi, after paying hundreds of bucks to attend.

Hi Alf,

I'm Frank and after many windows pc's and laptops i've decided to get a chromebook just yesterday. I can't figure it out how to get all of my documents in a offline mode. This was very possible with my Windows laptop.

Hasn't anyone replied to your request.

Hope to get it working soon
