We are moving away from Safari, Firefox, and (goodness, please tell my you don't still use) Explorer in favor of Google's browser, Chrome. There are several reasons to make this change. Since we are all using Google Apps now (right?) you will quickly notice that everything works better in Chrome. Plus, Chrome can update itself. And there are all those really cool extensions for Chrome. But here is yet another reason to switch.
When you log into Chrome and set a bookmark, that bookmard is available to you no matter which machine you are using. The bookmarks stay with your account, not the preferences on the machine. This is a good thing. If your computer crashes or you have to create a new computer account, all your stuff on Chrome will still be there! The same is true for your history and your people.
If you need assistance using Google Apps, don't hesitate to ask me. I'm learning too, but I'll help all I can.
The weeks are rolling by and here is your next "Google Tip of the Week". You can make a drawing and add it to your Google Doc or Slides. Pretty nice drawing tools, too. Look at the attached document for an example.
While working in a Doc or Slide, just go to the "Insert" menu and select "Drawing". That's all there is to that.
Want to keep your notes and reminders on Google? Try Google Keep.
Just follow this link: keep.google.com
If you want, you can add the Chrome extension. There will be a note on your page that provides the link. That was you can get notifications from your reminders. I've attached two pictures: one shows the initial screen which includes the blue note telling you about the extension. The next show what your screen will look like after adding a note or reminder.
