Google is more than a searching tool

questions_answers picIf you have not thought about using Google for various online tasks, think again.  Why pull out a separate gadget when you can do some of these tasks right at your computer desktop. As shown in the videos below, Google is more than a searching tool. For example, check out the calculator.

I just typed  calculator in the Google search field.  A calculator appeared on the screen as seen in the illustration below. Then I entered a math problem.  Click the VideoPress word to view the Video.   Press the Play button to see it a second time.

Another way to use Google quickly is to type in the problem right at the search field.  This is a sample division problem.

  1. In the Google search field type 400
  2. Press the space bar
  3. Type a forward slash /
  4. Type the number 5

View the video by clicking the word VideoPress.  Press the Play button to see it a second time.

You can also use Google to find out the weather where you live.  For another city  you can type weather, then type the city you want to know the weather for.

  1. Type weather in the Google search field

You can view the video by clicking the word VideoPress.  Press the Play button to see the video a second time.

I hope this is helpful 🙂
