Look at the bottom left corner of your display. You will see an icon with a magnifying glass (the search button). Click on it. You will see about 5 icons, one of them being labeled "all apps". Click on that to see your apps. You should probably do a search for getting started with your chromebook. Here is one link to help you a little http://www.chromestory.com/Getting_Started_With_Your_Chromebook.pdf . Good luck.
