My Favorite Features

Google is so easy to use, why attend Nancy Blachman's presentations? If you're like many people, you use only a small number of Google's services and features. Learn how to go beyond Google's deceptively plain interface and take advantage of many shortcuts and underutilized capabilities. For example, get driving directions by entering a US street address into Google's search box. If you aren't sure whether a word is hyphenated, search for it with a hyphen, e.g., [ long-term ]; you'll get more results. Find synonyms by preceding the term with a ~, which is known as the tilde or synonym operator, e.g., [ google ~guide ] finds guides, tip, help, and tutorials on using Google. For a quick summary of some of Google's features, visit the Google Guide cheat sheet. The more you know about how Google works and its capabilities, the better it can serve your needs.
