Search High and Low III

Last December, I posted the second in a series with tips about searching with Google. Here are some more great search hints to make your searches work for you.

Definitions:  To see a definition for a word or phrase, simply type the word “define” (or "define:" if you want to define a phrase) then a space, then the word(s) you want defined.

Blogs: Want to read up on different opinions? Check out the blog search on Google.

 Sunrise/Sunset:  No, not Fiddler on the Roof but find out what time you will see the sunrise?  Type in "sunrise Rome, GA" (without the quotes) or the city of your choice. Poof... your results.
Time: Anybody know what time it is?  Goggle does, but most like for your nearest larger cities. Type in "time Atlanta" (without the quotes).
Now you know! ☺

Create a Website Shortcut on your Desktop

The icon next to the URL in the address bar.
There are lots of ways to bookmarking, linking and organizing, but sometimes you just want to be able to go to your favorite site quickly and easily from your desktop. Here is a great quick tip that works in I.E., Firefox, Opera, and Chrome.

Make your browser a window, if it is maximized, so you can see your desktop.  This can be done by clicking the two boxes that are right next to the X on the upper right corner of the browser. Now click and drag the small icon next to the URL in the address bar off the browser page to the desktop.  It's that simple! ☺
