I did a web search on “How to run EXE on Chrome OS” and got quite a few hits. Here is a link to one of them. http://www.howtogeek.com/173353/how-to-run-windows-software-on-a-chromebook/

    Chrome OS is based on Linux, you can change the OS in developer mode and install Linux and can run .exe files through wine/ crossover.

    To run EXE files in non-Windows system, you can use WINE (free to use) while Crossover is not free and expensive.

    @fusiongaming10, what is your purpose to run .exe files on Chrome OS? Be cautious before using an non-Android/ Linux based applications. It is better to take all necessary backups & keep them in a safe place. Then you can download/ install WINE for Android for your experience.
