Do you find you’re seeing more browser push notifications? Some of these are quite useful, but others are a result of me clicking to allow something in my haste. This week, I hit the tipping point. Each time the little box would push out from the right side of Chrome, I’d want to smack it. While that might make me feel good, the better solution was to change my browser settings.
Google Product Tutorials
Below is a list of various Google tutorials that we've done. These include step by step instructions on their various products from Goolge to GMail. And in some cases, there may be screencasts.
Back in the old internet days, people rarely changed email addresses. Today is a different story with people changing jobs and having multiple email addresses. Sometimes email programs don’t want to let go of the old addresses and keep displaying them for us, which can present problems. I’ll skip the embarrassing parts and show you an easy way to remove stale addresses from the Google’s auto-complete list.
One bad habit I have is letting my Gmail inbox get too big. I don’t always delete emails as fast as I should. These accrued items tend to be non-urgent items I get on a recurring basis that I haven’t flagged as a priority. Eventually, I reach that tipping point and want to delete these Google emails in mass. There are many ways to delete Gmail items, but here’s one tutorial that requires minimal effort and you can do at your own pace.
Browser extensions are great add-ons when they work. But I ran into a problem where one of them continually crashed when I opened Google Chrome. Worse, because it didn’t load properly, I couldn’t uninstall the Chrome extension in the normal manner. Fortunately, there is another solution to this problem.
Sometimes Gmail’s simplicity makes people think it is missing features. A case in point is distribution lists or group lists. Many people think that it’s not possible to send an email to a group of contacts or email addresses. The truth is that you can create personal Gmail distribution lists in a couple of easy steps by using Gmail groups.
