More Googley Tips - CTRL F & Shift Z

Image from pixabay.com
Two quick tips for Google Drive or really any web page you might come across.

CTRL F will help you Find information within a Google file or Microsoft Office file, or even on any website you might visit. Use it to find a word or number within a Sheets or Excel file. Find a word in a Docs or Word file. Even use it to find a word or number anywhere on practically any web page instead of scrolling and scanning. It's a wonderful tip to help you save lots of time when researching a topic, grading student work, and so on.

SHIFT Z will allow the user to save a Google document or file in multiple locations or file folders. What it actually does is create a "shortcut" that can "live" anywhere you want it in Google Drive. And the nifty part is, once you make a change to that one document, all of those other instances will also update instantly!
