Unhappy Chrome OS accidentally exited DEV mode when I switched from Linux using Ctrl alt shift < HELP!!!


For the past few days Ive been installing Linux Ubuntu Gnome Bionic Beaver Onto my Acer Chromebook, and after a long, stressful experience Ive finally gotten to where I had wanted too get. I closed my laptop to go to sleep and when I opened it up it opened on Linux but I wanted to use Chrome OS so I clicked alt + Ctrl + shift + < and once it switched over I noticed it didnt open with the usual scary ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT TOO STAY IN DEV MODE press space bar if you want too exit or Ctrl + D usually crap but instead just went straight to the google sign in screen. I remember that entering dev mode clears all data or whatever so I dont want to try too do that in case everything Ive worked on gets cleared. What should I Do? Somebody please help!!

i'm not sure i understand.
are you using google translate? something's getting lost in translation i think.

we need
a) a better problem description
b) much more information about what is happening, how you installed ubuntu (some tutorial?) etc.
