When I try top open the page chrome://apps/ in HP Chromebox this is the message I received
This site can’t be reached
The webpage at chrome://apps/ might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.
Using Widows 7 the web page opens with no problem.Any suggestions would be appreciated

Tried the same URL on my HP ChromeBook 11, and received the same error.
Did some research on the Chromebook Central Help Forum and found this post:
It states basically that the URL chrome://apps does not exist in the Chrome OS. You can prove this by typing chrome://about into a new tab. This lists all the available URLs to Chrome. chrome://apps is not there!
There was another suggestion in that post for an app called Extensity.
What exactly is the goal here? My Chromebook works perfectly even with this minor "glitch".

Thanks for reply . Like yourself my Hpchromebox works very well and I really am pleased with it.
The reason why I wanted the chrome apps page is that sometimes I download an app but then I cannot find it on my Chromebox. I presume that is sutable for another device but not Chromebox. I therefore wanted to find it and delete it.
Unfortunately with Chrome apps if you have different devices say a Chrome box and Android tablet and the app works with the tablet but not the Chromebox you will not get a message that the app is unsuitable for your device
