I can get by working on Windows in a pinch. Using Power Toys to remap my keyboard to be more "Mac Like" with Alt Swapped for Control and Caps Lock mapped to Esc really helps.

I use the built in Win key search as an app launcher. I use the built in Snip & Sketch tool for screenshots. Check my ChromeOS list for some of the web apps I also use for productivity.
Power Toys Settings:
- Caps Lock -> Esc
- Esc -> Caps Lock
(Optional) To make alt and ctrl more Mac like:
- Alt (Left) -> Ctrl (Left)
- Ctrl (Left) -> Alt (Left)
- Alt (Right) -> Ctrl (Right)
- Ctrl (Right) -> Alt (Right)
- Ctrl + Q -> Alt F4
PowerToys Run set to Ctrl + Space
Go to clipboard settings and enable clipboard history.
Go to mouse pointer and set the cursor to a custom color of black. The default black cursor option is smaller and harder to see.
