Google Tips/Hints

Just a quick reminder on saving files/folders to Google Drive.

1.  Go to Drive by the App Launcher or typing drive.google.com

2.  Click on New (above My Drive on the left)

3.  Click on Upload file or Upload folder

4.  Choose files/folders from your computer when the file window opens up and Click OK.

5.  Files will upload to general Drive folder unless you designate the folder; Folders will upload to a specific folder. 

Please let me know if you have any questions/concerns.

NOTE:  Please be sure to check your "shared" settings so that any files/folders you upload to Google Drive are kept private or shared with only whom you wish to share with.

Google in the News

Google Sites has gone through a major update and has changed the user interface and tools.  The initial look is easier to follow and edit as is the ability to resize and move objects.  
Some features are still going through "growing pains" and in beta, but in the coming months I will be offering workshops on the updates.  
Any questions please ask!  If you want to start exploring let me know and I can help you through the initial startup.
