Google Contacts is designed to help any Google account holder with an easy way to manage their contact list, similar to other contact management tools. However, you may see some strange address records that show up in your address book. These are called “Other Contacts.” In this tutorial, I’ll explain what are “Other contacts” and what you can do with them.
I’m a creature of habit and each Wednesday I go to my local supermarket’s website to see the specials. Certain of these specials are unique to me so I need to log in to see them. This week I couldn’t log in. Each time I got a message saying my session expired and to log in again. I had a pretty good idea that the problem was with some site cookie. The good news is there are multiple ways to clear cookies for one site with Google Chrome.
Somedays, I just want to scream when things that did work, no longer work. This happened this week when I needed to contact a vendor by email. This is usually a simple task where you click an email link and it opens in your default application. Instead of getting Gmail to open up in Chrome, I was staring at the Microsoft Store email app.
Many of us have been conditioned to block pop-ups in our web browsers. I do this because most of them are intrusive and hinder me from reading. The problem is sometimes you need pop-ups as they are part of the site. This happened to me when I was going through an online course. Fortunately, Google has a way to selectively allow pop-ups in these cases.
