sudo cp /usr/bin/nano ~/Downloads/

Step 16: Wait for the terminal in Chrome OS to finish closing down the Xfce Desktop, then type or copy and paste the following commands:

sudo mv ~/Downloads/nano /usr/local/bin/

sudo chown root:root /usr/local/bin/nano

cd /usr/local/bin

sudo cp startxfce4 startelementary

sudo gedit startelementary

Remember to press CTRL-ALT-SHIFT-F1 or F2(Left/Right Arrow) to switch back and forwards between both Elementary OS and Chrome OS.
