By Switch, the I.T. Support Robot

Google is an excellent search engine that is being used worldwide. Here are some Google tricks to try that you may not have known about:

  • Definitions – By typing in the word “define” before any word, Google displays a definition of the given word. Ex: define Google 
  • Find movies and weather – Type “movies” or “weather” followed by a state, city or zip code to display theaters or current weather. Ex: weather 75110
  • Local Search – Visit Google Local, enter the area you want to search, and the keyword of the place you want to find. Ex: Corsicana restaurants 
  • Translate – Translate text, a full web page, or search by using Google Language Tools.
  • Calculator  Use the Google Search engine as a calculator by typing a math problem in the search. Ex: By typing 156 + 147, Google would display the answer as 303. 

We hope these tricks and tips will help you as you continue to use Google. 

Happy Computing!!
