Mr. Myrt whisked me away for a dinner date with the Little Red-Headed Girl and her mom, so my very distant cousin, Sweet Sadie hosted this webinar. Topics included:
- Seeing what Google Chrome Browser Extensions we have installed and turned on or off.
- Click 3 dots on right side of the Chrome address bar.
- Select “more tools”
- Select “Extensions” to see what’s installed.
- See also the Chrome Web Store
Our favorite Google Chrome Browser Extensions include:
- Google Translate This can handle entire web pages without copy/paste.
- Session Buddy
- Google Hangouts
- Send from Gmail
We also discussed free Google Drive with free cloud-based programs:
- Google Docs (wordprocessing)
- Google Sheets (spreadsheet like MSExcel)
- Google Slides ( like MSPowerPoint)
- And Sweet Sadie demoed Google Forms
