I have Kindle for PC on all my computers and smart phone, but I also have a Chrome Book which I find handy. The only Kindle App for Chrome Book is Kindle Cloud Reader. I am unable to open generic mobi files from on my Chrome Book. How do I get my Kindle Cloud Reader to recognize those files.

I believe you would email them to your Kindle's email address, which would then host them in the cloud.
I'm sure someone will correct me if this is not the right information.

You don't. The only mobi files readable on any Chromebook must come from your Amazon kindle archive. Chromebook provides no support for any non-amazon mobi file, which is a shame since I have over two thousand non-amazon mobi files in my personal archives.
